State of Illinois Alzheimer’s Disease Plan 2014-2017

Are you interested in learning about the current recommendations made to the legislature in order to make Illinois a better “dementia-capable” state?

The Alzheimer’s Disease Illinois State Plan 2014-2017 Report and Recommendations was developed by stakeholders and the Illinois Department of Public Health in 2014.

The report acts as a great guidepost for the current programs in the State of Illinois to support persons living with or at risk for dementia due to Alzheimer’s disease and other related disorders.

Anyone interested in advocating for better services for persons living with or at risk for dementia in Illinois definitely should read this report.
