 NCCAP/ALZHEIMER'S ASSOCIATION

NCCAP is proud to collaborate with the Alzheimer's Association and other leaders in long-term and community-based care on this guidance document (www.alz.org/professionals-covid) to help ensure the delivery of high-quality care for people living with Alzheimer's and all dementia during the current COVID-19 crisis. 

As you know, long-term and community-based care settings are facing unprecedented challenges as a result of COVID-19. Many individuals receiving services in these settings are living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias. This guidance, grounded in person-centered care, provides critical information on how best to care for these individuals. In particular, we hope this document will be useful in informing non-clinical staff or staff from a new department or other healthcare setting of best dementia care practices should they be pressed into new roles due to staffing shortages

Dear Activity Professionals,

During this time of uncertainty, we want you to know that NAAP is here for you. As Activity Professionals we each work in a variety of settings from geriatrics to pediatrics with different levels of care. This can also be a time of confusion and chaos for the most vulnerable clients we serve.

As we continue to ensure an ongoing resident-centered activities program, we hope this resource page filled with suggestions and support will assist you in continuing to provide quality programming to the populations you serve.

We are Activity Strong!

Sincerely,
The NAAP Board of Directors
