Annual Report to Governor & General Assembly due Sept. 1 (Chapters 410 & 411, Acts of 2019).
[photo, Herbert R. O'Conor State Office Building, 201 West Preston St., Baltimore, Maryland] In October 2013, the Virginia I. Jones Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders Council was authorized by the General Assembly to continue the work of the Maryland Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders Commission (Chapter 305, Acts of 2013). The Council's initial charge was to develop and monitor the 2012 Maryland State Plan on Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders devised by the Commission.

Further, the Council was to improve and enhance quality of life and support, and services for individuals living with Alzheimer's Disease and related disorders, and their families, by promoting and expanding the availability and accessibility of home- and community-based support and service programs. In pursuit of these goals, the Council reviewed State statutes, policies, and programs.

Beginning in July 2019, the Council charge was expanded to update and advocate for the Maryland State Plan on Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders. In addition, the Council will examine the needs of individuals with Alzheimer's Disease and related disorders as well as their caregivers to identify how the State can assist most effectively. On policy, funding, and other issues relating to Alzheimer's, the Council is to advise the Governor and General Assembly. It also will develop and promote strategies that encourage brain health and reduce cognitive decline.

Originally to report by September 30, 2016, authorization for the Council in 2016 was extended to September 30, 2019. Also in 2016, three members were added to the Council (Chapter 75, Acts of 2016). In 2019, authorization for the Council again was extended, to September 30, 2024, and other changes made (Chapters 410 & 411, Acts of 2019).
