The Alliance to Improve Dementia Care
The Alliance aims to transform and improve the complex health- and long-term-care systems that people at risk for and living with dementia must navigate.

Overview

 The Alliance to Improve Dementia Care brings together a multi-sector coalition of leaders to advance timely detection, access to treatment and coordinated care, and health equity for people at risk for and living with dementia and their caregivers. Through expert workgroups, convenings, and collaborative initiatives, the Alliance amplifies and promotes the adoption of proven solutions and promising innovations.

The Alliance expects to accomplish these goals:

  • Identify gaps in care: Mobilize cross-sector leaders to create solutions and amplify innovations to address gaps in information resources, care delivery, and support services. 

  • Collaborate with policymakers: Work with federal advisory boards, agency leaders, and elected officials to overcome long-standing care and financing barriers and advance scalable solutions. 

  • Propose policy and systems solutions: Develop and promote policies that build a dementia-capable workforce across the care continuum and advance comprehensive dementia-care models that align care preferences and incentives.
