We're Listening...

Are you or someone you know affected by Alzheimer's Disease or a related disorder?
We want to hear about it...

The State of Rhode Island is taking bold action to confront the most common form of dementia—Alzheimer’s Disease—and related disorders, affecting more Rhode Islanders every day.

In a series of Listening Sessions, we’re inviting care-givers, healthcare providers, family members and anyone impacted by the disease to tell their story and provide vital input to a comprehensive State Plan for Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders to address this important public health issue. The sessions are hosted by the Office of Lieutenant Governor, the Division of Elderly Affairs and the Alzheimer's Association - Rhode Island Chapter. All sessions are free and open to the public.

The work to develop a State Plan is well under way in Rhode Island. Co-chaired by Lt. Governor Elizabeth Roberts and Catherine Taylor, Director of the Division of Elderly Affairs, a working group to create a State Plan for Alzheimer's Disease spans many organizations and individuals in the state. The group is open to participation by the public. A Full Group meeting is held every other month, while six sub-groups have been formed to tackle the many aspects and challenges of this disease.

The Long Term Care Coordinating Council has been designated as the "home" for this work by a Joint Resolution recently passed by the legislature and signed by the Governor on May 25, 2012. 

We welcome the public's input. Send us an email to info@ltgov.state.ri.us (write Alzheimer's in the subject line).

Parking available at the Providence Hilton Parking Garage:  $3 for 3 hours.  Bring ticket for stamping at the library.
