California Leaders Confront Alarming Rise in Alzheimer's Cases
Date:3/9/2011

2008.  Under the leadership of the Alzheimer's Association, State Health and Human Services Agency, and Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders Advisory Committee, a broad-based task force was appointed.  The task force engaged more than 2,500 individuals in plan development, including people living with the disease, under-served communities, representatives from the health care and provider community, researchers, academicians, family caregivers, local and state government staff, and elder law experts.  

The plan was funded through a unique public-private partnership, including support from The SCAN Foundation, The California Endowment, The Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation, and Archstone Foundation.  

"When properly implemented, this plan can and will benefit the entire state and every California resident.  We will see a difference in how prepared California is in the face of an unavoidable and alarming rise in Alzheimer's cases," said Sundsmo.

The Alzheimer's Association's five California chapters are part of the national Alzheimer's Association.  The mission of the Alzheimer's Association is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research, to enhance care and support for all affected, and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. It is the largest private funder of research for Alzheimer's disease and related dementia.  For more information and to download a copy of the California State Plan for Alzheimer's Disease, visit http://www.caalz.org.  Families and others can get information on the disease 24/7 by calling the Alzheimer's Association's Helpline at 1-800-272-3900.
