Governor's Task Force on Alzheimer's (Disease) Prevention and Preparedness
AUG 9, 2019 | Ca. Health & Human Services (CHHS) | ANNOUNCEMENT
We are living in a time of historic demographic change, and California has the largest aging population in the nation. As Governor Newsom stated in his first State of the State Address, “The Golden State is getting greyer. We need to get ready for the major demographic challenge headed our way.”
By 2030, the U.S. Census Bureau has estimated that approximately one in five Californians will be 65 or older. The population aged 60 years and over in California is expected to grow more than three times as fast as the total population in the state. As the population grows, it will also grow diverse, with different populations having different needs.
These statistics remind us how important it is to tackle the policy, economic, and health challenges for those with age-related brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s and for those who love and care for them.
The purpose of this task force is to present recommendations to the Governor on how local communities, private organizations, businesses, government, and families can prevent and prepare for the rise in the number of cases of Alzheimer’s Disease and all its consequences – and to navigate a path forward to combat this disease in a time of historic demographic change.
To find out more about the task force and the members you can find the complete announcement HERE.
