Dementia Capable Care Transitions: Better Care and Better Outcomes
Dementia Capable Care Transitions, supported by a three year grant from the Administration for Community Living, is an innovative and much needed initiative to develop and implement an evidence-based care transitions model targeting the dementia population.
Addressing this critical need opens a door for families to receive critical support during their transition from hospital to home. This is very important for families with over-stressed care givers and is a model for all chronic diseases across the lifespan.
We recognize that persons living alone with a dementia and persons with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities (IDD) represent special challenges to us in developing an effective model.
We also recognize that this journey will raise important public policy questions that will need to be addressed.
