Massachusetts State Plan Overview
In 2010, Governor Deval Patrick directed the Executive Office of Elder Affairs, in partnership with the Alzheimer's Association Massachusetts/New Hampshire Chapter, to draft a state plan addressing Alzheimer's disease within the state. In response, these two agencies convened an Advisory Committee that included families and individuals impacted by the disease as well as representatives from state and local health and human services agencies, councils on aging, academia, public safety agencies, and professional caregiver associations. Gathering public input, the Advisory Committee published the Massachusetts Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders State Plan in February 2012. Following 2018 legislation (Chapter 220 of the Acts of 2018), a new State Alzheimer's Plan was released in April 2021.
