About the Dementia Care Provider Roundtable
The mission of the Alzheimer's Association Dementia Care Provider Roundtable (AADCPR) is to advance care and support services for people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias and their caregivers, through the dissemination and adoption of evidence-based Practice Recommendations. The AADCPR is a consortium of thought leaders from the dementia care provider industry including assisted living, nursing home, and home and community based services.

Through the Dementia Care Provider Roundtable, the Alzheimer's Association brings together industry leaders to discuss key areas in Alzheimer's care and support practices in a precompetitive platform.
The Roundtable meets twice a year in person, and also convenes by video conference twice a year, for coverage of topics identified by members as the most current critical needs. The Roundtable may also focus on specific issues facing the AD field that impact many of the member companies by forming a Task Force or Work Group.
Roundtable members explore a broad range of Alzheimer's cutting edge care and support topics, including:
- Challenges of person-centered care implementation.
- Evaluating person-centered care practices and outcomes.
- Working better with diverse families.
- Gaps in psychosocial research.
Scope and reach
Combined, members of the Dementia Care Provider Roundtable:
Serve over 600,000 people daily.
Manage over 5,100 points of service in all 50 states and 15 countries.

Representation among Roundtable members
The Roundtable includes members from various service lines. Each service line represents a different perspective along the continuum of care for long-term care and community-based providers. This ensures that the Roundtable focuses on a range of issues relevant to multiple levels of care.
