We're proud to share the release of our most recent publication in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society (JAGS)! Led by our fantastic former postdoc Rebecca Lassell who is as of Aug 1 an Assistant Professor at Indiana University School of Public Health-Bloomington. This article, coming from our National Institute on Aging - NIH funded DSM-H Trial, found that persons living with dementia receiving home healthcare have high neuropsychiatric symptom burden such as agitation or wandering (much more so than in the general population). Therefore home health agencies have the opportunity to significantly improve care and quality of life for this population.
If you work in #homehealthcare, reach out to talk to us about implementing our evidence-based quality improvement program to address neuropsychiatric symptoms. Can significantly improve the care you provide driving patient/caregiver satisfaction and referrals!!!
