The Dementia State Plan 2015-2019 was produced by The Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders Commission (the Commission) as an update to Virginia’s 2011 Dementia State Plan.

The Commission and its partners envision a dementia-capable Virginia that provides ethical, person-centered, evidence based, and high quality care across the continuum of the disease through a
coordinated system that meets the needs of individuals with dementia, regardless of age, and their caregivers.

The five goals of the plan provide a comprehensive vision to:

1. Coordinate Quality Dementia Services to Ensure Dementia Capability
2. Use Dementia Related Data to Improve Public Health
3. Increase Awareness and Create Dementia Specific Training
4. Provide Access to Quality Coordinated Care in the Most Integrated Setting
5. Expand Resources for Translational Research and Evidence-Based Practices
