WEST CHESTER (June 11, 2019) – In recognition of June as Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, state Senator Andy Dinniman recently met with representatives from the Alzheimer’s Association to discuss his efforts in Harrisburg to fight this debilitating disease.

“Alzheimer’s Disease is the most common cause of dementia among older adults. It’s an insidious illness that threatens to rob people of their memories, relationships, independence, and their lives,” Dinniman said. “However, with advances in research and cutting-edge treatments, as well as early diagnosis, we can and must do more for those living with Alzheimer’s and their families.”

Dinniman met with Amanda Alderfer, Walk Manager for the Alzheimer’s Association- Greater Pennsylvania Chapter, to discuss some important bills to improve treatment for and prevent abuse of those living with Alzheimer’s.

There are an estimated 400,000 Pennsylvanians living with Alzheimer’s Disease. And it is one of the most expensive diseases in the nation.

Last May, the Pennsylvania Department of Aging announced the formation of Pennsylvania’s Alzheimer’s State Plan Task Force. The task force was created to take a lead role in implementing and championing the goals and recommendations of Pennsylvania’s State Plan for Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders
