Meals on Wheels Expanded Assessment: Southern Maine Agency on Aging

The Southern Maine Agency on Aging (SMAA) https://www.smaaa.org/index.html created an expanded version of their Meals on Wheels (MOW) assessment with the vision of identifying people living alone with dementia without adequate support and connecting them to other services. This expanded assessment stresses the importance of screening for cognitive impairment. It aims to identify people who need certain resources and connect them to those resources. It addresses the social determinants of health, isolation, transportation, falls, and more. The Southern Maine Agency on Aging also adapted the Crisis to Thriving Scale for use with people living alone with dementia. With the Dementia Crisis to Thriving Scale the respondent rates the person’s level of risk on several domains such as food security, in-home care, and falls risk.

White Paper: Translating Innovation to Impact: Evidence-based interventions to support people with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers at home and in their communities.

Research conducted in the United States shows that more than forty non-pharmacological treatments and care practices have positive effects for some people with Alzheimer’s or other dementias who live in the community and some family caregivers. As discussed in this white paper, all of these treatments and care practices have been tested in randomized controlled trials (RCTs), the gold standard for rigorous scientific research. More non-pharmacological treatments and care practices are in various stages of development and evaluation. Much of this research has been conducted with funding support from the National Institute on Aging and other National Institutes of Health partners, including the National Institute on Nursing Research. In just the three months following the June 2012 meeting, RCTs conducted in the U.S. have shown positive effects for three new non-pharmacological treatments and care practices for people with these conditions and their family caregivers.

National Research Summit on Care, Services, and Supports for Persons with Dementia and Their Caregivers:
Report to the National Advisory Council on Alzheimer’s Research, Care, and Services (April 27, 2018)
This is the final report associated with the Research Summit on Dementia Care and was authored by the Summit co-chairs, Laura Gitlin and Katie Maslow and the federal lead for the Summit, Rohini Khillan.
This final Summit report includes the results and recommendations of the National Research Summit on Care, Services, and Supports for Persons with Dementia and Their Caregivers (also called the Research Summit on Dementia Care) held on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) campus on October 16-17, 2017. The Summit complements the National Institute on Aging's (NIA) Alzheimer's Disease Research Summits and the National Institute for Neurological Disease and Stroke (NINDS) Alzheimer's Disease Related Dementias Summits, and follows the same general structure. These conferences are coordinated planning efforts that respond to the National Plan to Address Alzheimer's Disease, first released in 2012 and now updated annually. Following the example of the earlier NIA and NINDS Summits, this Summit was intended to set national research recommendations that reflect critical scientific priorities for research on care and services for persons with dementia and their families. The Steering Committee and organizers of this Summit solicited input from nationally and internationally recognized experts and researchers, and other public and private sector stakeholders, to develop prioritized recommendations. The recommendations included in this report will help guide investments by a number of public and private stakeholders in the field of care, services, and supports, and will provide the structure for future summits.
