2018 NADRC Webinar (September 12, 2018): Improving Healthcare for Persons Living With Dementia (weblink/pdf)

2018 NADRC Webinar September 12, 2018
Improving Healthcare for Persons Living With Dementia

People living with dementia are frequently under-recognized and under-diagnosed by healthcare providers; consequently, they do not receive the medical care they need, nor are they connected to essential home- and community-based supports. The federal duals demonstration offers opportunities to better blend funding and oversight for Medicare-funded medical care with Medicaid-funded long-term services and supports, so that people with dementia and their families can get better integrated care. This web seminar offers tools and strategies to improve dementia healthcare, approaches that have been developed within this demonstration model, but also have relevance to other healthcare systems.
