Michigan Dementia Coalition Survey


AARP Michigan has joined with the Alzheimer’s Association Michigan Chapters, Huntington’s Disease Society, university researchers and other Michigan partners to create the Michigan Dementia Coalition. We are working together in 2017 to identify issues, share new information and offer policy recommendations for legislators and other Michigan policymakers to improve dementia related resources, supports and services across the state of Michigan. 

Your input will help us improve the quality of life for individuals with dementia and their families. Please take a few minutes to share your perspective and suggestions.

Dementia is a general term for a decline in memory or other thinking skills severe enough to interfere with daily life. Memory loss is an example. Alzheimer's is the most common type of dementia, but there are also many other types, including vascular dementia, dementia with Lewy bodies, frontotemporal dementia, and Huntington’s disease.
