The Alzheimer's Association is proud to sponsor SB 449 (Monning, D-Carmel)

Other priority bills include:
The mission of the Alzheimer’s Association is to eliminate
Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance
care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the
promotion of brain health.
The State Policy Office of the Alzheimer’s Association in California fulfills the
national Alzheimer’s Association mission.
Our priorities reflect the consensus of California’s five chapters and
20 local offices to advance statewide public policy issues. The policy office identifies
and influences issues that demonstrate a direct, positive link to people living
with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia disorders and their families.
Through the leadership of the state policy office families drive policy decisions
that impact persons with dementia, their families and caregivers.
