Vascular Dementia: An Important Supporting Actor in the Story of Dementia
Cerebrovascular disease plays an important supporting role in many persons with mild cognitive impairment and dementia and often co-occurs with Alzheimer’s disease. This webinar will provide an overview of the role of cerebrovascular disease in late life cognitive impairment including risk factors and common misconceptions. The challenges associated with understanding the role of vascular risk factors, stroke history and stroke imaging findings will be explored. In addition, issues related to managing the symptoms of vascular dementia will be discussed. Participants will have the opportunity to ask their questions during the webinar.

2019 NADRC Webinar:
Caregiving for people living with non-Alzheimer’s
In recent years, research on Alzheimer’s disease has increased significantly, but there has been less focus on other types of dementias. Because less is known about non-Alzheimer’s dementias, under- and misdiagnosis is common, treatment protocols are lacking and it is not clear how best to support people with these dementias and their caregivers. This web seminar will provide an overview of the three most common causes of dementia after Alzheimer’s disease, which include Lewy body dementia, frontotemporal degeneration and vascular dementia. Presenters will draw upon available information to describe caregiving for people living with these dementias. Special attention will be given to how caregiving for people with Lewy body dementia and frontotemporal degeneration may be different from Alzheimer’s disease. Case studies of caregiving for people with Lewy body dementia and frontotemporal degeneration will be highlighted.

Financial Capacity for People with Dementia and Their Caregivers

The irreversible and progressive nature of dementia underscores the importance of planning for the future as soon as is practical for the person living with dementia and their caregivers or family. As dementia progresses, a person living with dementia will lose the ability to manage care and finances. Future planning for those affected by dementia can include identifying healthcare and supportive service options, determining how care will be funded and examining useful financial and legal resources. This web seminar will discuss key aspects of financial, legal, and healthcare planning that can help to ensure a more stable future for persons living with dementia, and their caregivers.

Measuring the Impact of Dementia-Friendly Education and Training Sessions

Description:
A group of Administration for Community Living (ACL) grantees worked with ACL and the NADRC to create brief tools for measuring the impact of dementia-friendly training and education efforts. The resulting tools focus on knowledge, attitudes, and behavior or practice change outcomes. The tools are part of a “toolkit” that includes background on how the tools were developed, information about the use, scoring, and reporting of the tools, and an annotated version of the tools for those who are interested in the source of the questions.

This web seminar provides background for why the tools were created, the process used to create the tools, and a review of the content in the toolkit. The tools referenced in the presentation are available at: https://nadrc.acl.gov/node/172.

2019 NADRC Webinar:
Addressing Social Isolation and Loneliness Among People Living With Dementia

Studies indicate that 28 percent to 34 percent of people with dementia are socially isolated and live alone. With no one else living in the home to observe changes in the individual’s cognitive and functional abilities, the progressive decline associated with dementia may go unnoticed until an emergency occurs. In addition, some studies have found that people with dementia who live alone may not manage their daily activities as well or at all when they feel lonely. This web seminar will focus on strategies programs can use to address social isolation and loneliness among people with dementia who live alone. Presenters for this webinar include representatives from two programs that focus on identifying and providing services to people with dementia who live alone, including the Model for Alzheimer’s/Dementia Services (MAS) in Fort Worth, Texas, and the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) Care Ecosystem in San Francisco, California.

Strategies for Sustaining ACL Dementia Grant Projects and Lessons Learned Over Time

Administration for Community Living (ACL) dementia grants provide funding to strengthen dementia capable systems and to plan and implement programs to support the needs of people living with dementia and their caregivers. Throughout the course of the grant period, grantees develop strategies to sustain their programs. This web seminar will provide examples of two ACL dementia grant programs that are successfully sustaining portions of their initial grant programs. Lessons learned and strategies used to sustain these dementia programs are applicable to many types of community based programs.

In Texas, BakerRipley’s Dementia Specific Case Management program combines care coordination, active management and advocacy in a flexible framework to better address the needs of individuals living alone with dementia. Katie Scott will discuss how easy referral systems, care coordination and formal contractual partnerships helped to sustain this program. Over the past 13 years, the Alzheimer’s Association Northern California and Northern Nevada chapter specifically, and the Alzheimer’s Association more broadly sustained the Savvy Caregiver Training program. Alex Morris will discuss funding streams and strategies used to maintain this evidence-based program and the impact of delivering the training to caregivers of people living with dementia.

ACL Dementia Grantee Developed Products: Virginia’s Collaborative Care Coordination Model and Eddy Alzheimer’s Services Training on Dementia Care for Persons with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

Administration for Community Living dementia grantees often develop products that are used by the developing organization and are beneficial to others working in various areas of dementia. This webinar will feature two products developed by grantees: (1) a model of coordinated dementia care and (2) a dementia training for professional caregivers of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The coordinated care model was developed and piloted through a collaborative relationship between the University of Virginia's Memory and Aging Care Clinic and the Jefferson Area Board for Aging, the local Area Agency on Aging. The presenter will explain the importance of coordinated care for people living with dementia and their care partners, and will describe the program, its outcomes, lessons learned and challenges. Links to available replication materials will be provided in the webinar. The dementia training was designed specifically for professional caregivers of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The presenter will describe some of the tools and resources used, and where to find them. A discussion of challenges, successes, and "lessons learned" will help participants to consider the practical application of a similar curriculum in their practice setting.

Engaging, Training and Implementing Programs that Utilize Volunteers for Dementia Programs

Volunteers can provide valuable support for organizations serving persons living with dementia and their caregivers by enabling organizations to expand their capacity and plan for long-term sustainability. This web seminar will focus on finding, training and retaining volunteers; providing volunteers with meaningful work; and determining which volunteers are a good match for programs that serve persons living with dementia and their caregivers. Presenters for this web seminar include representatives from two programs that rely on volunteers to provide dementia-capable services, including the Respite Ministry in Alabama and Dementia Friendly Wyoming’s Friendly Visitor Program.
