Specialized ADRD training, Year 3 report

In 2019, UCSF was awarded a five-year, $3.2 million California Department of Public Health Alzheimer’s Research Award to study the impact of IHSS+ Alzheimer’s training in partnership with the Center for Caregiver Advancement (formerly CLTCEC) and Alameda Alliance for Health (AAH). Under the agreement, training will be provided to 600 IHSS providers over five years.

IHSS+ Alzheimer’s is a voluntary 10-week training course where In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) providers learn practical skills to help care for people experiencing symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. A comprehensive, competency-based training program, IHSS+ Alzheimer’s is designed to enhance the skills and knowledge of these caregivers who play a crucial role in maintaining the health and well-being of the older adult consumers they serve and keeping them healthy at home as opposed to in institutions.
