2019 NADRC Webinar:
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.
