The Alzheimer’s Disease Demonstration Grants to States National Resource Center conducts case studies which describe and analyze Grantee initiatives. The purpose of these case studies is to provide information to states, consumers, and providers on how the U.S. Administration on Aging’s ADDGS programs help improve the care system for people with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers. In particular, these case studies:
- Document “promising practices.”
- Identify policy issues in providing services to people with Alzheimer’s disease and their families.
- Identify implementation barriers and ways of overcoming them.
- Assess how selected sites are addressing the goals of the ADDGS program.
