Getting a Beat on Alzheimer’s in Rhode Island

Credit Office of the Lt. Governor

Lt. Gov. Elizabeth Roberts toured the state with an all-volunteer work group for a number of listening sessions to get a better sense of what’s available to those suffering from dementia and their caregivers.

They also wanted to hear about what more can be done to help residents with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Input from those sessions then went into a plan that has been released to the public. Rhode Island Public Radio’s Catherine Welch sat down with Lt. Gov. Roberts to get a sense of the challenges facing those with dementia.
