Care Ecosystem (CE)

Established in 2017, "Care Ecosystem is a dementia support program that combines elements of effective programs into a scalable model ... Care is delivered via the phone and web by unlicensed Care Team Navigators, who are trained and supervised by a nurse, social worker, and pharmacist. Proactive care modules focus on caregiver support and education, medication consultation, support around medical, financial, and legal decisions, and behavior management ... [CE provides] important guidance as health systems determine what dementia care services to provide and to which beneficiaries ... [as well as] a framework for caring for a diverse population of patients and caregivers across the care continuum" (https://grantome.com/grant/NIH/R01-AG056715-01). CE's "goal is to improve quality of life, health care utilization, caregiver burden, and satisfaction with care" (https://www.nia.nih.gov/alzheimers/clinical-trials/care-ecosystem-navigating-patients-and-families-through-stages-care).
