To support the development of a countywide ADRD strategic plan that addresses policy, systems, and environmental changes, in 2021, the Los Angeles Department of Public Health helped to launch the three-year Los Angeles County Building Our Largest Dementia Infrastructure for Alzheimer’s Act Initiative (LA BOLD). The University of Southern California Family Caregiver Support Center (USC FCSC) assumed oversight of the Los Angeles Caregiver Landscape Analysis, a critical part of the initiative. The goal of the analysis is to identify, understand, and respond to the diverse needs of family caregivers in Los Angeles County (LAC) with a set of actionable recommendations.
