The research shows how community-based organizations reinforce services commonly provided by social workers. These services range from providing information for physicians regarding caregiver education to referring community services. The Minnesota/North Dakota Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association was specifically highlighted, due to its newly-developed network of providers and clinics, which made an important step in establishing dementia-capable health care by increasing the occurrence of direct contact between patients and physicians.
