Alzheimer's Disease Supportive Services Program (ADSSP): Creating and Sustaining Dementia-Capable Service Systems for People with Dementia and their Family Caregivers

The objective of the Alzheimer’s Disease Supportive Services Program (ADSSP) is to expand the availability of dementia-capable support services for persons with Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD), their families and their caregivers.

This goal will be acheived


1) enhancing the ability of state systems and programs to embed dementia-capability in their service networks; and 2) by delivering dementia-capable supportive services using evidence-based and/or evidence-informed interventions to support persons with dementia and their caregivers.

The grantees receive targeted technical assistance provided by the National Alzheimer’s and Dementia Resource Center.
