Supporting Caregivers of Patients with Dementia

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) announces the Health Care Innovations Exchange The featured Innovations describe three programs designed to help caregivers of those suffering from dementia. The programs include one in which trained consultants provide emotional support, education, and referrals to caregivers; a team-based collaborative care model that offers ongoing support for primary care providers; and an overnight program that allows caregivers to remain at home while the individuals they care for are transported to a facility where they spend the night in a safe and stimulating environment. The featured QualityTools include a toolkit to design initiatives tailored to the unique needs of dementia patients and their caregivers; a website to manage problem behaviors and psychosis in people with dementia using evidence-based approaches; a tool that summarizes research on recognizing, diagnosing, and treating people with Alzheimer’s disease and their families; and a guide for persons with memory problems and their caregivers.
