Providing in-person services and supports to people living with dementia during COVID-19
At the onset of COVID-19, most community based in-person services and supports that people living with dementia and their caregivers rely on were suspended. In limited cases however, in-person services continued. During this webinar, two providers will discuss how their organizations used innovative approaches to ensure people living with dementia continued to receive needed services through traditional means of in-person delivery during COVID-19. Nevada Senior Services adult day center has remained open during the months of COVID-19 providing adult day services to its clients at two locations, albeit with a lower census and strict policies in place to reduce the chance of COVID-19 transmission. Ventura County Area Agency on Aging quickly adjusted their home delivered meals program at the onset of COVID-19 to include all clients who live alone with dementia and those with intellectual disabilities and dementia. Multiple phone call check ins and respite care were used to further assist people living with dementia and their caregivers.
