Capitol Hill Event for 2018 Dementia Care Practice Recommendations

Susan Gilster was recently a speaker on Capitol Hill as she joined the National Alzheimer’s Association and the nation’s top researchers, interested organizations and members of Congress to discuss ways to improve quality of care and quality of life for those living with dementia.

Dr. Gilster was one of 27 experts invited by the National Alzheimer’s Association to update and develop the 2018 Dementia Care Practice Recommendations, presented to policymakers and the dementia care community formally during the Capitol Hill event in February. Dr. Gilster led the development of the best practice recommendations for creating a person-centered dementia capable long-term care workforce.

The recommendations have been posted online and were published as a supplement to the February issue of The Gerontologist.
