LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) - Virginia is revamping its Alzheimer’s initiative website to provide more information to patients, physicians and caregivers.

The retooled website will be launched this summer. The News & Advance (https://bit.ly/1vnnFZV) reports that the website will include an Alzheimer’s database with information on everything from care giving to cognitive impairment.

The website also will give primary-care physicians access to lists of Alzheimer’s specialists and clinics that can do memory assessments.

Dementia Services coordinator Charlotte Arbogast says Virginia hasn’t had a comprehensive Alzheimer’s database until now.

The state also is updating its dementia plan. Public hearings will be held to gather input from residents.
