Rates of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias are expected to increase greatly over the next decades. Many practices lack guidelines on how to increase quality of diagnosing, treating, and supporting people with dementia and their family members and other caregivers. This workgroup met from January to November 2017, aligned with and built off the Alzheimer’s State Plan, and organized recommendations with the following focus areas:

  • Early detection and appropriate diagnosis
  • Ongoing care and support or management including for family members and caregivers
  • Advance care planning and palliative care
  • Assessment and planning for need for increased support and/or higher levels of care
  • Preparing for potential hospitalization
  • Screening for delirium risk during hospitalization for all patients over 65
