ACL dementia grants provide funding to strengthen dementia capable systems and to plan and implement programs that support the needs of people living with dementia and their caregivers. Throughout the grant period, grantees develop strategies to sustain their programs. This webinar will provide examples of two programs that are successfully sustaining portions of their initial grants.

In Texas, BakerRipley’s Dementia Specific Case Management program combines care coordination, active management, and advocacy in a flexible framework to better address the needs of individuals living alone with dementia. Katie Scott will discuss how easy referral systems, care coordination, and contractual partnerships helped to sustain this program.

Over the past 13 years, the Alzheimer’s Association Northern California and Northern Nevada chapter, and the Alzheimer’s Association at large, sustained the Savvy Caregiver Training program. Alex Morris will discuss funding streams and strategies and the impact of delivering the training to caregivers of people living with dementia.


  • Katie Scott is senior director of Dementia and Caregiver Support Services at BakerRipley, managing a dementia-specific adult day center, caregiver support services, dementia-specific case management, and regional and state initiatives to improve dementia care in Texas.
  • Alex Morris is one of the lead trainers of the Savvy Caregiver Training program at the Alzheimer’s Association’s Northern California and Northern Nevada Chapter, which has been offering Savvy for the past 12 years.
