Translating Innovation to Impact: Evidence-based interventions to support people with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers at home and in the community
Published June 1, 2012
This white paper presents the findings and recommendations from a review of the state of the art non-pharmacological treatments and care practices for people with Alzheimer’s or other dementias and their family caregivers. It is intended to support deliberations by the Advisory Council on Alzheimer’s Research, Care and Services, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) and other government and private organizations about how to make effective non-pharmacological treatments and care practices available to people who will benefit from then. Its development resulted from a public-private partnership between AoA and the Alliance for Aging Research, with funding from the Metlife Foundation.
