 Dear DAA Friends & Partners:

We received a grant from the Harvey Picker Center of Innovation & Applied Research in Long-Term Care to gather feedback from people living in the United States with dementia, as well as family and friend care partners, on their priorities and preferences for accessing and utilizing information resources.  This collective feedback will be used to determine how best to make resource materials about living well with dementia available for people across the country.

Please disseminate this Invitation throughout your Organization and Professional Networks.

The Survey needs to be completed no later than June 26, 2015.  

Please complete a short on-line survey regarding your priorities & preferences for information and resources about dementia care and services.                          ​




All information will be kept confidential and only used to collectively inform the resources that would be most meaningful to you.    Findings from the survey will be provided to policymakers, healthcare practitioners, service providers and organizations and will be posted on.    Findings from the survey will be provided to policymakers, healthcare practitioners, service providers and organizations and will be posted on http://daanow.org/survey/ .

Sincerest Appreciation for Sharing this Request with Your Colleagues and Networks,

Jackie Pinkowitz; Karen Love; Jill Harrison; Walter Coffey; Chris Laxton; Chris Perna
