The Alzheimer’s Association Announces New “Dementia Care Navigation Roundtable” (DCNR)” The DCNR convened experts from across the healthcare industry to share best practices and disseminate resources. The goal is to help people living with dementia achieve improved outcomes, reduce hospital stays and emergency room visits, shorten delays in long-term care placement, as well as address the needs of caregivers. The DCNR will develop strategies and solutions that would allow these benefits to be implemented in more communities across the country.

The new paper provided the cornerstone of the DCNR’s work to create a national framework for dementia care navigation. For more information on care and support services, visit
