The 2018 Massachusetts Law Relative to Alzheimer's and Dementia in the Commonwealth included a provision creating the Massachusetts' Governor's Advisory Council on Alzheimer's Disease.  Noting that only half of people living with dementia are diagnosed, the Advisory Council, chaired by Secretary of Elder Affairs Dr. Elizabeth Chen, recognizes the need to drive detection and diagnosis, especially in primary care. The Council's Diagnosis and Service Navigation Work Stream has identified tools to assist providers with diagnosis; the Alzheimer's Association, MA/NH Chapter is pleased to provide links to those resources here.
