New mode of dementia care improves health, lowers hospitalization rates
Date:2/10/2011

on't receive dementia care using our model. In addition to the obvious health benefits, all this puts less emotional and financial burden on the individual, family members, and the system paying for health care," said Dr. Boustani, a geriatrician.

Family caregivers, estimated by the Alzheimer's Association to exceed 10 million Americans, typically are not a focus of memory care in spite of the fact that they provide hundreds of millions of unpaid care hours per year and are hospitalized at a very high rate.

"With the HABC model we have extended the definition of patient to include family members who enable cognitively impaired individuals to live in the community. Our physicians, nurses, social workers and other staff members work closely with both the older adult and family caregivers in the medical office and in the home as well as over the phone and via e-mail, to deliver efficient, good care which reduces depression as well as improving physical health," said Dr. Boustani, a geriatrician.

The HABC model is being studied by others who provide memory care at sites across the United States and in Europe.

Currently an estimated 5.3 million Americans have Alzheimer's disease. Eight out of 10 individuals with dementia live outside of nursing homes. Many have significant behavioral or psychological symptoms requiring medical and psychological care.
