About the Delaware Alzheimer's Disease Initiative

In September 2015, the U.S. Administration for Community Living/Administration on Aging awarded the Division of Services for Aging and Adults with Physical Disabilities (DSAAPD) a three-year, $898,324 grant for the Delaware Alzheimer's Disease Initiative.

DSAAPD will use the grant, in partnership with the Alzheimer's Association Delaware Valley Chapter and other key stakeholders, to improve Delaware's system of long-term services and supports for people with Alzheimer's disease and related disorders and their caregivers.

Plans for the project include the following initiatives:

  • Broaden the existing legal services program in Delaware to address the specific needs of individuals and caregivers.
  • Develop a pilot sensor technology program to protect the health and safety of individuals with Alzheimer's disease and related disorders who live alone.
  • Develop a training and consultation program through the Delaware Caregiver Resource Center to support family caregivers.
  • Expand the availability of respite vouchers for caregivers through the Delaware Lifespan Respite Program.
  • Expand the availability of community integration services for individuals with Alzheimer's disease and related disorders through the Community Living Program.
