The Commission, created by Chapter 76 of the Public Laws of 2011, was mandated to study the current impact and incidence of Alzheimer’s disease among State residents and make projections about the future impact and incidence; study the State’s role in long-term care, family caregiver support, and assistance to persons with early stage and early onset of Alzheimer’s disease; consider the capacity of public safety and law enforcement officials to respond to persons with Alzheimer’s disease and for these officials to have proper education and training; study the needs of persons with Alzheimer’s disease and their family members and caregivers, assess the availability and affordability of existing services, programs, facilities, and agencies to meet those needs, and make recommendations for improving, expanding, or changing them, as appropriate; gather and disseminate data and information relative to the care of persons with Alzheimer’s disease in order to provide health care professionals and governmental policymakers, as appropriate, with accurate data about the disease and its impact on these persons and their family members and caregivers; identify the adequacy, appropriateness, and best practice-based geriatric and psychiatric services and interventions; and consider such other issues as the commission may identify as necessary to ease the burden for persons with Alzheimer’s disease and their family members and caregivers in the State.

The commission completed its work and submitted its report to the Governor and Legislature in August 2016.
