Short Description
To expand the availability of diagnostic and support services for persons with Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD), their families, and their caregivers, as well as to improve the responsiveness of the home and community-based care system to persons with dementia.

ADSSPS grantees continue to implement two types of ADSSP projects, dementia capability and translation projects. Dementia capability grants require states to help ensure that people with dementia and their family caregivers have access to a home and community-based services system. Such a system identifies those with dementia, ensures that program staff have appropriate dementia care training, and assures delivery of quality home and community-based services. Evidence-based grants require states to demonstrate how existing evidence-based interventions designed to help people with ADRD and their family caregivers can be translated into effective supportive service programs at the community level.

Objectives and Goals
The purpose of the Alzheimer?s Disease Initiative: Specialized Supportive Services (ADI-SSS) project is to fill gaps in long term services and supports (LTSS) for persons living with Alzheimer?s disease and related dementias (ADRD) and their caregivers by expanding the availability of specialized services and supports. The grants are intended to fill existing service gaps in the following areas: 1) Provision of effective supportive services to persons living alone with ADRD in the community. 2) Development of dementia capable systems designed to improve the quality and effectiveness of programs and services dedicated to individuals aging with intellectual and developmental disabilities and at high risk of developing ADRD. 3) Provision of effective care/supportive services for persons living with moderate to severe impairment from ADRD and their caregivers. 4) Behavioral symptom management training and expert consultation for family caregivers.
