Pilot program helps Alzheimer’s patients

Posted

I am excited to connect with you again with our first Reeves Review of the 2022 session.  

Last week, I was honored to introduce SB 1749. This legislation established a pilot program to grant respite care for Alzheimer’s patients and their caretakers.  

The bill is named in memoriam of Retired Colonel Thomas G. Bowden, a Tullahoma native who dedicated 26 years of service to the United States Army and received the Distinguished Service Medal, among other awards. Colonel Bowden lost his life to Alzheimer’s at age 68.  

This act serves as a testament to Colonel Bowden’s life as well as a tribute to the loving care provided by his wife of 46 years, Barbara Bowden. The Senate passed the new State Senate and Congressional district maps. Middle Tennessee has experienced unprecedented growth compared to east and west Tennessee.  

The 14th District experienced big changes, gaining a greater portion of Rutherford County and Cannon County. Bedford and Moore Counties remain part of the 14th District, while Lincoln County will now be part of the 16th District and Marshall County part of the 28th District.  

Serving as Senator of the 14th District for the past 4 years has been one of my life’s greatest honors. I have developed connections and friendships with so many and I hope to continue to be a resource to all as we enter into our new districts. My team and I are thrilled to see what other great legislation we can pass in the weeks to come.  

As always, please do not hesitate to give us a call at 615-741-1066.
