According to the TN Disability Coalition (TDC), in 2019 a bill strongly supported by the Tennessee Coalition for Better Aging (TCBA), of which TDC is a part, passed this session. This creates a state Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia advisory council attached to the Tennessee Commission on Aging and Disability (TCAD). This council will work to create an Alzheimer’s disease state plan, identifying barriers to care and providing best practices to address these gaps.
