Councilmember Michael Stinziano to Serve on Statewide Alzheimer’s and Dementia Task Force

Councilmember Michael Stinziano is expanding his work to build an age-friendly Columbus and help older adults age in the place where they live. He will represent the City of Columbus as a member of the Ohio House of Representatives’ Task Force on Alzheimer’s and Dementia.

“Columbus' older adult population is growing five times as fast as the region’s total population growth,” said Councilmember Stinziano.

The meetings will take place twice a month from August through October of this year. The task force will discuss possible legislation and create a statewide care plan for Alzheimer’s and dementia.

“We as a City and as a State need to recognize this serious demographic shift and address the most pressing health and safety concerns facing residents. I look forward to working with leaders and organizations across the State to develop solutions,” he continued.

The task force, spearheaded by House of Representatives Speaker Clifford A. Rosenberger, will work to spread dementia awareness, instill collaboration between counties and the State through outreach efforts and increase availability of respite care and resources.

This effort is an extension of Councilmember Stinziano's continued work with seniors. He also serves as the chair of Age-Friendly Columbus, a City-wide initiative to ensure that individuals of all ages and abilities can remain in their neighborhoods and live a high quality of life independently.
