Description: The objective of the Alzheimer’s Disease Supportive Services Program (ADSSP) is to expand the availability of dementia-capable support services for persons with Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD), their families and their caregivers. This goal will be acheived by: 1) enhancing the ability of state systems and programs to embed dementia-capability in their service networks; and 2) by delivering dementia-capable supportive services using evidence-based and/or evidence-informed interventions to support persons with dementia and their caregivers. The grantees receive targeted technical assistance provided by the National Alzheimer’s and Dementia Resource Center.
