We especially thank Michelle Barclay, MA; David Bass, PhD; Christopher Callahan, MD; Maribeth Gallagher, NP, PhD; and Catherine Piersol, PhD, OTR, for their thoughtful review of a preliminary draft of the care components. The case studies would not have been possible without the generous provision of access and time by staff at the Benjamin Rose Institute, the Beatitudes Campus, the MIND at Home program at Johns Hopkins University, the Rosalyn Carter Institute, and the Healthy Aging Brain Center of Eskenazi Health System.
