New Alzheimer’s law puts state at forefront of dementia legislation

Jay V. Patel, Seniorlink’s Clinical Transformation Officer, was published in the Worcester Business Journal today. Patel discusses Alzheimer’s as a growing issue that is difficult to manage in our healthcare system and how Massachusetts is at the forefront of healthcare innovation in recognizing family caregivers as a key to battling the disease.

As an organization committed to supporting family caregivers battling this disease, Seniorlink and our subsidiary, Caregiver Homes, can attest to the significance of this legislative move.
