Do you have thoughts on how to improve the lives of people with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and their caregivers? Do you have an insight into the needs of people impacted by Alzheimer’s? We need your help.
We want your input and advice on how the state of Oregon and the federal government can address the growing crisis of Alzheimer’s. You can help by completing a brief survey to let us know what’s needed in Oregon. All responses are anonymous and will provide us with key information to shape state and federal development of policies and plans to address the impact of Alzheimer’s and other dementias in Oregon.
Choose the survey option that best fits you, and provide your input by September 15th, 2011.
- Family caregiver
- Someone with Alzheimer’s disease or memory difficulties
- Concerned friend or family
- Healthcare provider or paid caregivers
- Policy, legal, education, or other professional
Please pass this information and links to these surveys on to others who may want to contribute their input.
These surveys are being conducted by the State Plan for Alzheimer’s Disease in Oregon (SPADO) Task Force which unites knowledgeable people in Oregon to study and write a plan to improve Oregon’s readiness to serve people with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia and their families. Task force members include physicians, scientists, non-profit organizations dedicated to serving those with dementia, private sector senior care providers, police agencies, family caregivers, state government representatives who serve seniors and their families and state legislators. The Alzheimer’s Association Oregon Chapter provides staff assistance to SPADO.
