Alzheimer’s and Dementia Summit
The 2009 Alzheimer’s and Dementia Summit was the culmination of a year-long planning process involving an Alzheimer’s/Dementia Expert Panel formed by Mayor Gavin Newsom to investigate the growing crisis in dementia care. The Expert Panel, charged with developing a plan to address the demand for services related to Alzheimer’s/dementia care for San Franciscans through the year 2020, released the findings of their work and the plan for the future, which are linked below. The Alzheimer’s and Dementia Summit was held July 8, 2009 at San Francisco City Hall. The Summit was organized by Family Caregiver Alliance, with support from the Community Living Campaign and the Department of Aging and Adult Services.
