A Public health approach to Alzheimer's and other dementias. Module 4: Dementia capable systems and dementia friendly communities
Filetype[PDF-3.09 MB]

  • Description:
    This module is part of the Alzheimer’s Association curriculum, A Public Health Approach to Alzheimer’s and Other Dementias. Developed as part of a cooperative agreement with CDC’s Healthy Aging Program, and in partnership with Emory University’s Rollins School of Public Health, this curriculum addresses cognitive health, cognitive impairment, and Alzheimer’s disease and is for use by undergraduate faculty in schools and programs of public health.

    Module 4: Dementia Capable Systems and Dementia Friendly Communities addresses the public health response to the Alzheimer’s disease epidemic at the state and community levels. The module describes the concept of a “dementia capable” system, which involves accommodating the needs of a population that experiences memory loss, a variety of physical, cognitive, and behavior symptoms, and other co-morbidities.

    Module 4 explores how public health may support the development of such systems on state and local levels through: public health research and translation, support services and programs, workforce training, and the creation of dementia-friendly communities.
