Welcome to the National Dementia Care Collaborative

The National Dementia Care Collaborative (NDCC) aims to improve access to evidence-based comprehensive dementia care.  The NDCC provides a common platform for health systems and other provider organizations that have already implemented a proven model of comprehensive dementia care or are seeking to establish a new program.

​The NDCC is supported under a grant from The John A. Hartford Foundation to EDC entitled, “Rapid Dissemination of Evidence-Based Comprehensive Dementia Care Models”.

Join us in our efforts to implement comprehensive dementia care.

With generous support from The John A. Hartford Foundation, the Education Development Center (EDC) is coordinating with the developers of six evidence-based comprehensive dementia care programs to rapidly respond to increasing demands for dementia services and a new payment model launched by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Innovation Center.


The Guiding an Improved Dementia Experience (GUIDE) Model was announced by CMS in 2023 to test alternative ways for Medicare to pay for comprehensive dementia care that includes support for family caregivers. The NDCC brings together the developers of established comprehensive dementia care programs to define dissemination strategies, establish standards and tools, and conduct training to accelerate the adoption of evidence-based programs under the new GUIDE payment model.

The collaborating evidence-based programs include: the Benjamin Rose Institute Care Consultation (BRI-CC), Care Ecosystem, Aging Brain Center (HABC 3.0), Integrated Memory Care (IMC), Maximizing Independence (MIND) at Home and the UCLA Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care (ADC) Program.
