The Administration for Community Living's Administration on Aging announces the awards for the Alzheimer's Disease Initiative: Specialized Supportive Services (ADI-SSS) program. The awards total $10,330,835 amongst eleven unique organizations in seven states. The 2016 Prevention and Public Health Fund provides the resources for these three-year awards.
The funded projects will fill gaps in “dementia-capable” long-term services and supports by providing high quality, person-centered services for people with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD), and their caregivers.
Program focus areas include improvement of dementia-related services to people who live alone, and those affected by intellectual and developmental disabilities. Awardees are also addressing services to persons living with moderate to severe impairment from ADRD and their caregivers, as well as the provision of caregiver training in behavioral symptom management.
