Thursday, July 20, 2017

SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Monique Limón (D-Santa Barbara) wrote Assembly Bill 614 to bring additional resources to the hundreds of thousands of people and their families who are dealing with the impacts of Alzheimer’s disease. Assemblymember Limón knows the struggles they face because her Grandmother has Alzheimer’s. “Currently, there are over 588,000 Californians age 55 and over living with Alzheimer’s Disease. By 2030, this number will nearly double,” Assemblymember Limón said as she presented the bill to the Senate Health Committee. “California and our Triple A’s need the resources to support these individuals, their families, and caregivers.”  Watch this Assembly Access video to learn more about AB 614.
