Making the Long-Term Services and Supports System Work for People with Dementia and Their Caregivers
States serve a substantial number of people with dementia and their family caregivers in their Aging Networks and LTSS systems. Serving this population effectively involves accommodating the needs of a population that, in addition to memory loss, experiences a variety of physical, cognitive, and behavioral symptoms resulting from dementia, along with other medical conditions. In model dementia-capable systems, programs are tailored to the unique needs of people with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias, and their caregivers.
