Alzheimer's Disease Working Group Survey

The Washington State Alzheimer’s Disease Working Group needs your help!

Developing a State Plan to Address Alzheimer's Disease Do you have thoughts on how to improve the lives of people with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias, and of their caregivers? The Alzheimer's Disease Working Group (ADWG), formed through recent legislation (SSB 6124), is developing a state plan to address Alzheimer's disease.

The ADWG wants your feedback and advice on how public and private partners can respond to the growing impact of Alzheimer’s and other dementias. You can help by completing a brief survey to let us know what you think is most needed in Washington State, or by sharing the survey link with others to complete. We are particularly interested in reaching out to those directly impacted by this condition themselves or in their families.

All responses on the survey are anonymous and will provide useful information to shape strategic efforts and policies that can help families impacted now and in the future.

Who do we want to hear from? Our target audience is:

  • Older adults
  • People with memory loss, Alzheimer’s or other dementia
  • Concerned friends/family members
  • Family caregivers or care partners
  • Paid or volunteer social service, health or long term care workers
  • Advocates

Take action today! Pass news of the survey on to others in the above target audience, and please respond to the survey yourself!
