Recognizing cognitive impairment key to keeping older adults at home
Date:4/2/2009

are working to enhance dementia care in the nation's twelfth largest city. IDND is a national model for how members of the community, caregivers, clinicians and researchers can work together to improve the delivery of dementia care.

Nearly 360 health-care providers from throughout Indiana will participate in the multi-session summit, which is funded by a $75,000 grant from Pfizer Pharmaceuticals to the Medical Education Group of Community Home Health Services. CHHS, which provides home health-care services, has partnered with IDND to sponsor the summit. In late 2007, IDND launched RAPID-PC Recognizing and Assessing the Progression of Cognitive Impairment and Dementia in Primary Care, a highly successful program.

"We hope that this summit will serve as both a local resource and a national model which will spawn similar educational opportunities to help doctors, nurses and others who take care of older adults in their homes to better deal with their often unrecognized mental health needs," said Jessie Westlund, R.N. of Community Home Health Services, part of Community Health Network.

"Recognizing and properly treating cognitive impairment will only become more important as our population ages. If we can identify and handle it appropriately, we can help keep older adults in their homes and out of long-term care facilities longer, a goal which benefits older adults and saves health-care dollars," said Dr. Boustani.
