2020 NADRC Webinar:
Addressing Dementia in Indian Country: Where We Are and What Comes Next

The number of older adult American Indians and Alaska Natives is increasing, and because dementia is more common with advanced age, as this population grows so too will the impact of cognitive impairment and related caregiving. Communities are taking note of this trend and are taking action to promote brain health, improve community knowledge about dementia and discerning their approach to support caregivers. This webinar will present key background material and an American Indian leader will talk about their dementia related activities.
Presenters: Michael Splaine, Carla Eben

2020 NADRC Webinar:
Finding the Right Fit: Choosing Dementia Caregiving Programs for your Organization and Community

There is ongoing interest in launching new programs to support caregivers of people living with dementia. Over the past two decades, a wide range of these programs have been developed to help offset adverse effects of caregiving. Although many of these programs are ready for broader community implementation, according to the Families Caring for an Aging America report from the National Academies, most health and social services organizations have not yet incorporated these programs into their community offerings. To find the program with the best fit, an organization should understand the internal and external factors driving their own needs and understand the wealth of programs that exist for supporting caregivers. First, this web seminar presentation outlines important areas for organizations to consider before they embark on introducing a new program in their community. Second, this event highlights Best Practice Caregiving, a data rich resource providing information on more than 40 dementia caregiving programs, developed by the Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging, in collaboration with Family Caregiver Alliance and Katie Maslow, a visiting scholar at the Gerontological Society of America.

2020 NADRC Webinar:
Innovative Approaches to Reach Underserved Populations Living with Dementia

Community-based services and supports for people living with dementia and their caregivers may not target the specific needs and concerns of people in some underserved communities. This web seminar will provide two program examples that strive to meet the needs of specific underserved groups including the Latino population, and persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities and dementia.
The multicultural population served by Alzheimer’s Los Angeles presents challenges for delivery of disease and caregiver education. Different cultural groups view Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD) differently; for some it is heavily stigmatized. Literacy levels vary and groups view caregiving through different family structures and perspectives. The “Lost Memories” telenovela approaches caregiver education through a popular medium—the soap opera. It strives to make this education accessible to Latino families struggling to cope with ADRD.
Reducing Disability in Dementia (RDAD) is an exercise and behavioral management program that has been shown to reduce perceived disability and increase active days among persons with ADRD, as well as to reduce unmet needs among caregivers. Led by the University of Kansas Alzheimer’s Disease Center, a regional network of organizations that provide supports and services in the Kansas City region leveraged the use of mobile technology to deliver the RDAD program to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities who have or are at risk for ADRD, and their caregivers.
Presenters: Debra L. Cherry, PhD; Kelli N. Barton, PhD.
