Alzheimer’s Tennessee, Inc. – Support, Education and Research for Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias


Alzheimer's Tennessee Advocacy

Alzheimer’s disease is a public health problem, and Alzheimer’s Tennessee, Inc. has played an active role in ensuring that legislators on both the national and state levels pursue programs that will provide the assistance needed by our families.

Advocacy Works!

An army of Alzheimer's Tennessee Advocates helped create Tennessee's New Silver Alert System and helped pass legislation to make every May Silver Alert Awareness Month in the Volunteer State. This designation will help Tennessee families learn how to prepare in case a loved one with dementia wanders or gets lost. 

Tennessee’s New Silver Alert Law

Thanks to our Advocates, the 2021 Silver Alert System is saving the lives of Tennessee seniors.

The law which passed both Houses of the General Assembly without a single no vote and was signed by Governor Lee to empower the TBI to work with local police and the media to find adults who wander from home.

Week after week, month after month and year after year, Silver Alerts helps reunite Tennessee families with their lost loved ones.
