Stockton Center on Successful Aging

Stockton to Host Public Hearing of NJ Alzheimer’s Disease Study Commission:
Examining current issues in NJ Alzheimer’s Care

Galloway Township, NJ-

The Stockton Center on Successful Aging will host a Public Hearing of the New Jersey Alzheimer’s Disease Study Commission on Thursday, November 13, 2014 from 2:30 to 4:00pm in the Campus Center Theater. Ample parking is available in the North Lot (corner of Pomona Road & Vera King Farris Drive) with regular shuttle service provided to and from the Campus Center, or park in Lots 2, 3, or 4.

This year, the Commission has heard from some experts in the field and researched ‘best practices’, but now they want to hear from the public to help prepare a report on findings and recommendations to be shared with the Governor and Legislature. This “listening session” is an opportunity for caregivers and other stakeholders to share ideas and perspectives on what should be included in the New Jersey Alzheimer’s Disease Plan. Testimony will be limited to 3 minutes per speaker and to one speaker per organization. For additional information e-mail AlzCommInput@dhs.state.nj.us, or call SCOSA at (609) 652-4311.
