HADSSP - Hawaii Alzheimer’s Disease Supportive Services Program



2019 Alzheimer’s Association Fact & Figures report estimates Hawai‘i has 29,000 people aged 65 years and older with Alzheimer’s dementia. This figure will grow by 20.7%  to 35,000 people by 2025.  With age being the greatest risk factor for dementia, and Hawai‘i having the fastest growing older population in the nation – it is of critical importance that the state becomes more dementia capable.


In 2017, the Executive Office on Aging (EOA) received a grant from the Administration for Community Living (ACL) to develop the Hawai‘i Alzheimer’s Disease and Supportive Services Program (HADSSP).  The goal of the grant is to build and sustain dementia-capability within the state’s No Wrong Door (NWD) Network and provide better access to services for persons with dementia and their caregivers. 


Major products from this grant will include a comprehensive dementia-capable training curricula tailored to Hawaii’s NWD agencies, a Memory Care Services & Supports Inventory and translations of dementia materials distributed in print and online, a project evaluation, and final report.
