Dementia Research, Care, and Services: Indicators of Progress

Emma Nye and Helen Lamont
Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation

Choosing indicators

  • Asked federal partners to identify important indicators of progress
  • Both qualitative and quantitative
  • Not all indictors available since 2011
  • Recognition of importance of measuring progress
  • Many indicators align with multiple action steps in the National Plan

Aligning Indicators to the National Plan

  • Used Driver Diagram to map indicators to National Plan
  • Not every Strategy or Action item can be measured quantitatively
  • Think about changing the National Plan to encourage measurement
Action Number Action Description
(from Plan)
Method of Action Lead Agency Partner(s) Project Completion Date/Status Activities in 2017 and 2018 Pertinent Indicators
Strategy 2.H: Improve Care for Populations Disproportionally Affected by Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias and for Populations Facing Care Challenges
2.H.1 Create funding opportunities for organizations to improve care for these specific populations. Fund dementia-capable systems to implement new programs designed to provide more effective services to: (1) individuals living alone in the community with dementia; (2) individuals with IDD who have or are at risk of developing dementia; (3) caregivers who need behavioral symptom management training or expert consultations to help them care for family members. ACL   Ongoing ACL awarded 11 community-based grants in 2017 for a total of 43 projects in 28 states and Puerto Rico awarded since 2014. ACL anticipates awarding additional grants in 2018. Note that future grants are contingent on availability of funding.
  • Number of programs implementing evidence-based and evidence informed interventions awarded since 2011
  • Persons with dementia and caregivers served for grants awarded 2011 and later. (ACL)
  • Improvement in dementia capability of programs funded since 2017 (we implemented the Dementia Capability Assessment in 2017, with first data in Fall 2018) (ACL)
  • Minority and rural/urban status for grants awarded 2015 and later. (ACL)
