Have you had concerns about dementia either for yourself or a loved one? You are not alone. An estimated 190,000 Michiganders age 65 and older have Alzheimer’s or other dementias. That means that more than a half million family members in Michigan are caring for these loved ones.

In 2016 a committed group of individuals and organizations formed the Michigan Dementia Coalition. Their vision is to make Michigan a dementia capable state. They have created a roadmap to achieve this goal by 2022 via promoting the well-being and safety of people living with dementia at all ages and stages; mobilizing partnerships to strengthen the service network; recognizing and promoting dementia as a public health priority; and enacting policies that strengthen families, communities and the economy.

The Alzheimer’s Association along with a total of 65 organizations is working to take action on this very important public health issue. For further information go to alz.org.
