2020 NADRC Webinar (January 28, 2020): Finding the Right Fit: Choosing Dementia Caregiving Programs for your Organization and Community

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.
