Year Enacted: 2005
Code: N/A
Description: The North Central Texas Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association will design, implement and evaluate a model of case management designed to enhance the quality of life of persons with Alzheimer's disease and their families through the timely provision of case management services. Caregivers frequently turn to primary care physicians for information and assistance obtaining services that physician's are often ill-prepared to provide. The proposed intervention will establish formal partnerships with two medical clinics, one metropolitan and one rural, for the provision of case management services. Outreach social workers will be present in the medical clinics to facilitate the provision of case management services and work with clinic staff to increase their knowledge and awareness of the case management needs of patients with AD and their families.
