2017 Home for the Holidays Campaign

Living Well with Dementia in the Community:
Resources and Support


The Eldercare Locator and n4a have launched a national public education campaign, in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association and Dementia Friendly America, to ensure that older adults and their caregivers are aware of the many home and community-based services and other aging programs available in communities around the country to support individuals with dementia.

This topic is the focus of the annual Eldercare LocatorHome for the Holidays campaign, developed to encourage discussion of important issues affecting older Americans at a time of the year when family and friends often gather. Past campaigns have addressed the growing problem of social isolation and loneliness and focused on strategies to help older adults transition to a non-driving future.

To help educate the public and key stakeholders about this issue, n4a produced a consumer brochure, Living Well with Dementia in the Community: Resources and Support, and a handy toolkit with all of the resources that members of the Aging Network need to support the campaign in their communities. To order the brochure, please visit the Eldercare Locator online store.

On December 14, n4a hosted a webinar on the Home for the Holidays campaign and how agencies can get involved in helping to increase community awareness. The webinar featured presenters from the Eldercare LocatorDementia Friendly America, the Alzheimer's AssociationMetropolitan Area Agency on Aging and the Gila River Indian CommunityView the webinar recording.
