CalHHS Alzheimer's Disease And Related Disorders Advisory Committee Meeting (ADRD)
The Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders Advisory Committee was established within the California Health and Human Services Agency in 1988 to provide ongoing advice and assistance on program needs and priorities of persons impacted by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia disorders.
The May meeting will have a presentation and discussion on capacity considerations, supported decision-making, and other decision-making tools for persons living with dementia. There will also be updates on the selection of key indicators for the Master Plan for Aging, the implementation of California’s Alzheimer’s Prevention and Preparedness Plan, and the status of proposed legislation related to Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

The Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders Advisory Committee members represent consumers, family members, providers, and advocates. Members of the Committee serve on a volunteer basis without compensation. In 2011, the California Health and Human Services Agency, in partnership with external stakeholders, released the California State Plan for Alzheimer’s Disease, which provides a set of goals, recommendations, and strategies to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health and to improve care and support for all who are affected.
