Hello, and welcome to the website for the Speaker's Task Force on Alzheimer's and Dementia.  This site has been created to keep Wisconsinites up-to-date on the task force's progress.  My office will update this website frequently making sure that the most current information is available. Please use this website to view written testimony, press releases, and news.

The Task Force on Alzheimer's and Dementia has been created to make recommendations on policy initiatives that would improve the care of those suffering from Alzheimer's and Dementia.  Through public hearings, we hope to compile enough information and ideas to guide possible future legislation.

Speaker Vos has given the task force a number of goals, including identifying ways to improve and sustain in-home care, improving and promoting community-based resources for those suffering with Alzheimer's and Dementia, continue raising individual and community awareness of these diseases, and determining ways to ensure future quality of care while lowing the cost of long-term care.

I would like to thank Speaker Vos for creating this incredibly important committee, as well as committing to finding real solutions to the problems caused by Alzheimer's and Dementia.

Mike Rohrkaste
Chairman of the Task Force on Alzheimer's and Dementia
