Abstract

In planning a statewide Dementia Program, Michigan agencies (N = 244)providing geriatric information and referral (I&R) were surveyed to determine service availability, families' needs, and problems providingI&R for persons with dementia and their families. Home-delivered meals, nursing and social work assessments were considered most available. Medical assessment, however, was considered ''very available'' by only 60%. Respite and adult day care were least available and most needed. Least was known about autopsy and financial services. For several services, non-urban areas reported less availability than urban areas. With additional information and training, existing agencies could provide more available and extensive I&R for persons with dementia and their families, forming a statewide network.
