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.

Improving HCBS Delivery Systems for Older Adults and Individuals with Disabilities: Redesigning Information Technology and Business Processes to Support Participant Control, Quality, and Cost Effectiveness
Key ResourcesADRC-TAE-Provided Resources
Source: HCBS Strategies for the ADRC-TAE
HCBS delivery systems that provide greater control to participants will likely have a positive effect on the participants' psychological and physical health. However, delivery systems that promise greater control, but have flaws that prevent that control from materializing may do more harm than good. Whether consumer-directed HCBS results in better outcomes largely depends upon how well the infrastructure that supports the delivery of these services is provided. This issue brief examines potential approaches to designing this infrastructure.

TAE Issue Brief - Options for Assessing the Impact of ADRCs on Long Term Care Costs
Key ResourcesADRC-TAE-Provided Resources
Source: ADRC-TAE, The Lewin Group
Measuring the effect of ADRCs presents a major challenge because ADRCs comprise just one component of complicated and constantly evolving state long-term care systems. Nonetheless, there are multiple strategies for collecting evidence about the way ADRCs impact the broader LTC system. While ADRCs might result in cost savings for Medicaid programs, many would argue that reducing unnecessary utilization and supporting community integration are important goals regardless of fiscal considerations. This paper focuses on assessing the fiscal impact of ADRCs.

TAE Issue Brief: Engaging Medicaid Agencies About ADRCs
Key ResourcesADRC-TAE-Provided Resources
Source: ADRC-TAE, The Lewin Group
The Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) initiative marks a historic new partnership between aging networks and Medicaid at the federal level. At the state and local levels, ADRCs present an excellent opportunity for the aging and disability networks to partner together in collaborating with state and local Medicaid-related agencies. These relationships are essential to coordinating access to all publicly-funded long-term care (LTC) programs serving older persons and people with disabilities. However, developing such partnerships can be challenging. This Issue Brief provides an overview of how relationships can evolve between ADRCs and Medicaid-related agencies. It discusses current integration of ADRCs and Medicaid, the role of ADRCs in streamlining access to Medicaid, examples of state and local ADRC-Medicaid partnerships, and strategies for ADRCs to engage Medicaid-related agencies.

Seniors and people with disabilities are highly vulnerable to health and safety risks associated with all types of emergencies and disasters. Reports and studies following Hurricane Katrina noted that seniors, people with disabilities and individuals with mental illness were often at greater risk than others during crises because their needs were not considered in emergency planning, response or recover efforts.
