The MIND at Home model of dementia care coordination was developed from decades of clinical dementia care experience and knowledge gained by internationally recognized leaders and the work of health services and researchers. It is based on best practice recommendations for persons with dementia and is driven by evidence-based research. The development and testing of MIND at Home has occurred through a series of research projects supported by philanthropic and public funding. All studies were approved by the Johns Hopkins Institutional Review Board.
