The Subcommittee includes representatives from care provider organizations, state agency officials, law enforcement officials, state legislators, caregivers, and other individuals impacted by Alzheimers. New Hampshire Alzheimers Disease & Related Dementias Sub-Committee Recommendations was published in 2013 and updated in 2015.

Incorporate Dementia in Existing Public Health Campaigns 

With 26,000 Granite Staters living with Alzheimer’s, information about the disease should be easily accessible yet the state currently does not include it among the diseases prioritized within the Department of Health and Human Services. The Alzheimer’s Association is calling on state lawmakers to approve legislation requiring the state to incorporate dementia into existing public health campaigns targeted to health care providers and to the general public. The campaigns should highlight the early warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia, the value of early detection and diagnosis, and how to reduce the risk of cognitive decline. Outreach will also include education for health care providers on the importances of early detection and timely diagnosis, the importance of validated cognitive assessment tools, Medicare billing codes for individuals with cognitive impairment, and the value of annual Medicare wellness visits.
