Description:

Part One of the Focus on COVID-19 & Dementia: Fall Webinar Series

The National Alzheimer’s and Dementia Resource Center (NADRC) is hosting a free webinar series on COVID-19 and dementia. Each webinar will focus on organizations that have pivoted their service delivery systems to continue serving and supporting people living with dementia and their caregivers during the pandemic.

At the onset of COVID-19, most but not all community-based in-person services for people living with dementia and their caregivers were suspended. During this webinar, two providers will discuss how their organizations used innovative approaches to ensure people living with dementia continue to receive needed services through traditional means during COVID-19. Nevada Senior Services adult day center has remained open, providing services at two locations, albeit with strict policies in place to reduce the chance of spreading COVID-19. Ventura County Area Agency on Aging adjusted home delivered meals to include all clients who live alone with dementia and those with intellectual disabilities and dementia. Multiple phone check ins and respite care further assist.
