On behalf of the individuals and families living with and effected by Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders, we are honored to share the new Arizona Alzheimer’s State Plan: A Framework for Action.

Arizona leads the nation in the advancement of research toward a cure and the advancement of quality care and supportive services for Alzheimer’s. Arizona is also challenged by the high growth rate of the disease.

This Plan offers a framework for public and private sectors, businesses, organizations, and communities to work together on common goals for Arizona.

1. Maximize public awareness and understanding
2. Develop new and enhance existing supports for people with Alzheimer’s disease and their families
3. Expand dementia-capable workforce in Arizona
4. Advance and disseminate research
5. Create a dementia-capable system in Arizona

Our next step as we move toward implementation will also include a call to action for individuals, families, and community members in how each of us can help address the growing need.  Watch this site for more information.
