2019 NADRC Webinar:
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.
