GUIDE-ing Change: Unveiling a New Way to Deliver Dementia Care



This podcast episode is a behind-the-scenes conversation about how dementia has personally touched our lives. We share our thoughts, impressions, and insights into Guide on Improving Dementia Experience, or GUIDE Model, a program created by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services with the goal to support individuals living with dementia and their families and allowing them to stay in their homes and communities for as long as possible.


This podcast is a special conversation from Think Tank, a forum that brings like-minded change agents together to build leadership skills, create resources, and deepen relationships that will influence aging services and the senior living industry toward positive change.


Through small-group collaborations, each attendee contributes toward deliverables such as white papers, infographics, mind maps, videos, documents, and other tangible works that are freely distributed to the aging services and senior living industry.


Our small group put together a 18-min video that summarizes the Guide on Improving Dementia Experience, or GUIDE Model, a program created by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services with the goal to support individuals living with dementia and their families and allowing them to stay in their homes and communities for as long as possible. The video will discuss the program components, who is eligible to receive the services, who is providing the services, pitfalls to watch out for, and how to benefit from the services. See resource links below for further information including how to apply to participate as a Part B Medicare provider and how to access the program as a participant.
