Call For Volunteers Survey
The Department of Health Services (DHS) and partners are conducting a survey to find volunteers to help implement the new Wisconsin State Dementia Plan (State Plan). The State Plan includes priorities in four key areas: care in communities; healthcare; dementia-related crisis response; and facility-based residential care. Implementation efforts will also focus on addressing dementia-related health disparities and access to services for different population groups in Wisconsin.

Learn more about the plan and get the survey link on this page of the DHS web site. The survey will be open until midnight on January 20.
