Providing Services for People with Dementia Who Live Alone: Issue brief Source: TAE
The ADSSP National Resource Center reviewed the available literature and conducted interviews with people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias who live alone, caregivers and health care and social service professionals to obtain their views about the needs of people and potentially effective ways to meet those needs. It also describes programs that have been tested by community agencies to reach and help people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias who live alone and discusses related public policy and practice implications.

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.
