Register for the NADRC’s free Webinar discussing Cognitive Impairment Planning in Tribal communities
The National Alzheimer’s and Dementia Resource Center presents “Addressing Dementia in Indian Country: Where We Are and What Comes Next,” a free webinar on Tuesday May 19, 2020. The number of older American Indian and Alaskan Native adults is growing. Therefore, the need for education on how to take proper care and create plans of action regarding the impact of cognitive impairment and related caregiving also grows. This webinar will present key background materials and local
American Indian leaders talking about their activities to improve cognition impairment relations.
This webinar will include trends about dementia and related caregiving among AI/AN communities, descriptions of lifecourse approaches to understanding dementia, distinctions between cultural differences in understanding of dementia and caregiving, and assessments of community attention to these issues.
Our very own Mike Splaine will be presenting at this webinar alongside Carla Eben, Director of Numaga Senior Services at the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe.

Preparing for the Rise in Dementia, How
Communities Can Get Ready
Sari Shuman, co-director of the National Alzheimer’s and Dementia
Resource Center, recently penned a blog post titled: Preparing for the Rise
in Dementia: How Communities Can Get Ready. The post examines the
development of dementia capable systems. Readers will find ideas to adapt
to best fit the unique needs of their organizations and communities to build
and expand local services for people with dementia and their caregivers. It
highlights the work of the U.S. Administration on Aging grantees.
Nevada Senior Services receives important
Good news for our friends at Nevada Senior Services! They’ve received an important endorsement as an essential nonprofit front line resource during COVID-19 from Congresswoman Dina Titus in an article put out by the Las Vegas Review Journal.
Nevada Senior Services has been able to keep its 80 employees on the payroll due to a loan of nearly $450,000. Without this loan, employees would have been furloughed, causing programs to be suspended that could affect the 2,500 seniors under Nevada Senior Services care.
