Project Title: Clinic Link – Embedded Alzheimer Society Consult as part of the Clinical Visit for Persons With Dementia
This project aims to offer a more coordinated, integrated, and seamless connection to the Alzheimer Society via an on-site referral at the time of a dementia diagnosis. The connection will help ensure that people living with dementia and their care partners view the Alzheimer Society personnel as part of their care team. The goal is to demonstrate earlier uptake of Alzheimer Society services to help to increase preparedness of care partners for the dementia disease process.
