Improving Dementia Long-Term Care and Support (RAND Corporation)


This report from the United States identifies 25 policy options covering five broad objectives to improve and support the delivery of “long-term services and supports” (LTSS). The five top-level objectives comprise:

Objective 1: Increase public awareness of dementia to reduce stigma and promote earlier detection of signs and symptoms.

Objective 2: Improve access to and utilization of LTSS for persons with dementia.

Objective 3: Promote high-quality, person- and family caregiver-centered care.

Objective 4: Provide better support for family caregivers of people with dementia.

Objective 5: Reduce the burden of dementia LTSS costs on individuals and families.
