Principle Objectives

The FLCEAD primary goal is to create a region-wide system of comprehensive care for people with AD/D and their caregivers.
 

To that end, our principle objectives are:

  • for FLHSA to convene a workgroup of key stakeholders to develop a data-informed strategic plan to increase region-wide dementia capability with emphasis on reducing health disparities, maximizing resources, and avoiding duplication of services
  • to increase awareness of AD/D and the benefits of diagnosis, among health and human service professionals, in older adults within the targeted underserved populations
  • to train more medical providers in primary care practices to screen for cognitive impairment and to refer or seek consultation as needed
  • to increase the capacity of the Memory Care Program (MCP) to serve more patients, especially those from targeted underserved populations
  • to standardize and implement practices within the MCP to enhance delivery of patient- and family-centered care that is coordinated with primary care practices and patient-centered medical homes
  • to reduce the average length of stay and total inpatient days of AD/D patients in hospitals throughout the Finger Lakes region
