The number of individuals affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias continues to grow. Regardless of setting, LeadingAge members of all provider types, are striving to improve the lived experience of individuals with dementia, and their care partners. While we hope for a cure, our focus is on developing services and supports that meet the needs of those living with the diseases now. As the aging services field and demographics change, people living with dementia are advocating for new kinds of housing, services and supports that allow them to continue to thrive in the setting of their choice, long after diagnosis.
Throughout our work, you’ll find person-directed resources, and a focus on the true experts—those living with dementia.
DFA is a movement to more effectively support and serve those across the country who are living with dementia and their family and friend care partners.
