Sharing the Care for Families Dealing with Alzheimer’s Disease or Related Dementias: Alabama’s PANDA Project
The PANDA Project (Providing Alzheimer’s N’ Dementia Assistance) was piloted in Alabama in 2019, through funding provided by the Administration for Community Living (ACL). PANDA provides supportive services, including person-centered care plans, education, and training, for people living with dementia (PLWD), aging adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their caregivers. Statistics show there are an estimated 15.7 million adult family caregivers caring for someone who has Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias in the United States, and many caregivers cannot recognize when they are experiencing the early signs of burn-out. This project is unique as Alabama AAAs are working together to provide consistency in the dementia services provided throughout their areas of the state and are keeping their local and state leaders informed of their work as part of their sustainability planning.
