On May 10th, Governor Bill Lee signed The Alzheimer’s disease and related Dementia Advisory Council Bill (Chapter 364 of the Public Acts of 2019) and LATN is proud to have two of our board members at the table. The council requests information, via this survey, to inform its work.  This survey is intended to gather information and perspective on needs relating to the experience and care of persons with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia in Tennessee.


 Please feel free to share this information and survey link with any Tennessean who would like to complete this survey.  If you would like to complete this form on paper, please email [email protected] or call 615-741-1428 and a copy will be mailed to you.
