Part of the National Alzheimer’s and Dementia Resource Center webinar series sponsored by the Administration for Community Living.

Family caregivers are an essential part of the healthcare team for persons living with dementia. Yet, family caregivers often go unrecognized in the delivery of health care to persons living with dementia. In an effort to provide care and improve outcomes for persons living with dementia, efforts are underway in several health care settings to better engage family caregivers in the development of care plans and the delivery of care. These efforts may eventually lead to improved health outcomes for both people with dementia and their caregivers as appropriate services and supports are channeled to the population. This webinar will define the challenges and benefits of including family caregivers as members of the health care team and describe practical approaches that are gaining support in two states. 


Presenters: Dr. Debra Cherry and Alan B. Stevens
