Indiana University (IU) was awarded grant funding in 2020 under the Administration for Community Living Alzheimer’s Dementia Programs Initiative to implement the Caregiver Stress Prevention Bundle (CSPB) for people living with dementia and their informal caregivers. The CSPB is delivered through five area agencies on aging (AAA) by trained care coaches who are community health workers employed by the AAAs and supported by IU dementia care experts. Presenters will share how the university partnered with AAAs to implement the dementia care program and results-to-date. Reasons why AAAs partnered with IU to launch a dementia care program and plans for sustainability will also be discussed.
Participants in this webinar will:
- Describe how IU partnered with five of Indiana’s AAAs to scale a dementia care program developed and tested at IU.
- List three key elements of the IU/AAA partnership leading to successful program implementation and process improvement.
- Identify three reasons why the AAAs partnered with IU to launch a dementia care program.
- Discuss plans for sustainability and statewide expansion of the IU/AAA dementia care program.
