Nationwide impact

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 quarterly by teleconference, and convenes in person once 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

The outputs of Roundtable meetings are published as white papers and potential articles in academic journals, and can have major impacts in the field of Alzheimer’s disease. 

Caring for People Living with Dementia During an Emergency

The Roundtable has also developed a video, Caring for People Living with Dementia During an Emergency, which provides tips and guidance for professionals in long-term and community-based care settings currently facing COVID-19 challenges. The video walks you through recommendations to provide person-centered care, prevent illness, help family and friends stay connected, assist with eating and drinking, monitor walking and unsafe wandering, and observe and respond to dementia-related behavior.

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.
