The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is proud to be the first state to join the Alzheimer’s Association Early Detection Alliance to expand the awareness of Alzheimer’s disease.

There are over 120,000 people in Massachusetts who suffer from dementia and the number will increase dramatically in the coming years as baby boomers turn 65.  Alzheimer’s disease affects not only the person with the condition, but family members as well.  Massachusetts is proud to be the first state in the nation to join the Alzheimer’s Early Detection Alliance (AEDA), offering employees of the Commonwealth access to information and resources they need to help a loved one.  Massachusetts is one of 65 Bay State employers to provide these resources to their workforce and urges other to join AEDA.
