Assessing Needs: Toolkit for Dementia, Cognitive Health and Caregiving
Dementia, cognitive health, and caregiving are not always included in community health needs assessments, leading to their absence in public health improvement and strategic plans. The Needs Assessment Toolkit for Dementia, Cognitive Health, and Caregiving can help state, local, and territorial public health and aging officials identify unmet needs of older adults, scale up existing community strengths, and promote healthy aging. Jointly developed by the Alzheimer’s Association and the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) join us on Tuesday, March 29 from 1:30-2:00 p.m. ET for a brief overview of the toolkit. Please register in advance.

The five steps of the toolkit are modular in design and allow jurisdictions to enter the assessment process at any stage to inform health improvement plans, Alzheimer's-specific plans, and aging plans. Aligned to the Healthy Brain Initiative Road Map, the toolkit embeds health equity as a cornerstone to assessing community health. It offers approaches to operationalize equity in the assessment process by including wide representation of people from different racial and ethnic backgrounds, geographic locations, and levels of socioeconomic status and educational attainment. Users will find fillable tools and worksheets to help get started and track progress.

Join our webinar to learn more about the five steps, how health equity can be prioritized during the assessment process, and how the results can inform strategic planning efforts. Register in advance and please forward this announcement to any interested colleagues.
