Dementia Care System Redesign Survey

Thursday, December 7, 2017 | Submitted by Trisha Witham l Dementia Care Specialist l ADRC |


The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) and partner organizations are working on a new state plan to help people with dementia, their families, and their communities. The plan will be written during 2018 and carried out over a five-year period starting in 2019. The plan will establish priorities for DHS as it works with partner agencies and organizations across the state to improve the lives of people with dementia and their families.

DHS and partners believe that people with memory loss or dementia, family members and people who informally care for someone with memory loss or dementia, and professionals that work with those who have dementia and their families can provide information and ideas that will be helpful to this effort.  Before preparing the new state plan, we are asking for assistance from these groups. We are asking this group to not only take the survey yourself but to also distribute the survey throughout your community and professional contacts so that we have the largest reach possible.

All Surveys can be found here, or, click on the links below for the individual surveys.

  • SURVEY 2: for family and other informal caregivers for people with cognitive concerns or a dementia diagnosis
