Team of Experts: CARES® Late-Stage Dementia Care

CARES Late-Stage Dementia Care was funded in part by a grant from the National Institute on Aging and completed in conjunction with the Alzheimer’s Association and researchers from the University of Minnesota, the University of Iowa, and Duke University.

HealthCare Interactive would like to thank the many families and dementia experts for helping to educate other caregivers by agreeing to participate and be videotaped in this program. We respect the sensitive nature of this material and appreciate the support of everyone involved.
