FOR The rise of Alzheimer’s disease AND OTHER DEMENTIAS

ALZHEIMER’S disease

  • Alzheimer’s is one type of dementia that accounts for up to 70% of all dementias.
  • Alzheimer’s is NOT normal aging; it’s a progressive, fatal, brain disease.
  • There is a new case of Alzheimer’s disease in the U.S. every 68 seconds.
  • Of Americans aged 65 and over, 1 in 8 has Alzheimer’s, and nearly half of people aged 85 and older have the disease.

ALZHEIMER’S disease

PREPARE MINNESOTA FOR ALZHEIMER’S 2020
  • In 2011, 70% of people with Alzheimer’s lived at home with help from family members.
  • In Minnesota over 241,000 Minnesotans were caring for someone with Alzheimer’s, providing unpaid care valued at $3.3 billion
  • The physical and emotional impact of caregiving is estimated to result in $148 million for Minnesota caregivers.
  • One in seven people who have Alzheimer’s live alone.

ALZHEIMER’S disease

  • Without change, the total cost of care for Americans age 65 and older with Alzheimer’s disease will increase five-fold per year.
  • In Minnesota alone, these costs could reach $20 billion, most of that coming from personal funds and Medicaid dollars.

Preparing MINNESOTA

Prepare Minnesota for Alzheimer’s seeks to:

  • Increase early identification and improve ongoing care;
  • Sustain caregivers by offering them information, resources and support;
  • Equip communities to support their residents who are touched by the disease;
  • Identify and invest in promising approaches that reduce costs and improve care; and
  • Raise awareness, reduce stigma and engage community.
equipping communities for the impact
EQUIPPING COMMUNITIES FOR THE IMPACT

Prepare Minnesota for Alzheimer’s has developed a Community Tool Kit to assist communities in becoming dementia capable so that they can support their residents who are touched by Alzheimer’s Disease.

dementia capable community
DEMENTIA CAPABLE COMMUNITY

A dementia capable community is informed, safe and respectful of individuals with dementia and their families, provides supportive options, and fosters quality of life.

Specifically, a dementia prepared community:

  • Ensures access to a variety of high-quality options that improve mobility, housing, health care, supportive services, financial and legal planning and support, and advance care planning;
  • Recruit volunteers and other community resources to respond to the needs; and
  • Foster contribution, connection, and meaning for individuals with the disease and their families.

A TOOL KIT FOR DEVELOPING DEMENTIA CAPABLE COMMUNITIES

A tool kit is available and can be used for:

  • Conveningkey community leaders and members to understand Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
  • Assessingcurrent strengths and gaps in dementia capability.
  • Identifying community goals and planning possible ways to respond.
  • Acting Togetherto pursue priority goals to foster community preparedness and dementia capability.
call to action
CALL TO ACTION
  • PMA 2020 is seeking “Action Communities” that will pilot the tool kit. This would entail the following activities :
  • Convene a community team of citizens to review the tool kit and provide feedback as it is developed;
  • Test the toolkit by assessing community needs and identifying possible goals the community might undertake to prepare for needs related to dementia;
  • Take action in a focus area the community team chooses to undertake; and
  • Provide feedback and participate in a survey/evaluation of the tool kit.
