The National Institute on Aging (NIA) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Administration for Community Living (ACL) are collaborating to host a five-part webinar series with the goals of improving coordination of federal resources available to assist people with Alzheimer's disease or other dementias and their family caregivers and encouraging awareness of research participation opportunities. NIA & ACL invite you to take advantage of these opportunities. The focus of this webinar will be on dementias that typically occur before age 65: Alzheimer's disease, behavioral variant frontotemporal degeneration and primary progressive aphasia. This session will also discuss the specific developmental, relational, and financial impacts of younger onset dementias, as well as detection, diagnosis, resources and research directions.

The webinar will examine policy-practice gaps in the implementation of HSCL and other relevant services and policies across five regional health authorities. It will review established and received input on study procedures from a community advisory committee. Data and demographic information was collected through policy analyses and interviews or focus groups held with various different groups of people.
