One million people with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia live alone.
APPLAWD is the next logical step for community agencies that have identified the issue of persons living alone with dementia as an area of focus, allowing them to take leadership and move toward solutions that will improve the lives of these individuals.
Living Alone with Alzheimer’s: A Solutions Summit: Calendar now open!
Our team is now booking the Solutions Summit events. The Summit is an excellent way to build community energy, knowledge and kick off a response to support persons living alone with dementia. If you would like to host a summit, please contact [email protected] for cost and calendar details.
The Living Alone Summit agenda will include conversations with persons who are navigating life with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia, an overview of the numbers and types of single person households they live in, health and social risk factors such as social isolation, and ethical dilemmas to consider. Solutions providers from social services, health care and technology sectors will be featured.
Who should attend?
Persons living with dementia, caregivers, administrators and staff from care communities, Alzheimer/dementia care providers, dementia friendly community leaders, health care systems, elder abuse prevention efforts, elder care managers and attorneys, hospital emergency department staff and organizations directing care systems for persons dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid.
Everyone can be part of the solution.
