Oklahoma Dementia Care Network (OkDCN)

The Oklahoma Dementia Care Network (OkDCN) is a collaborative statewide program to improve the care and health outcomes of older adults living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias and their family and friend caregivers. Our mission is to enhance the care and support for the growing number of Oklahomans affected by all types of dementia.

Our Goals Are To:

  • Promote a statewide network of organizations and people dedicated to improving the care of persons living with dementia and their caregivers
  • Train primary care providers to assess and address the needs of older adults with dementia
  • Transform primary care and long-term care settings to be age-friendly and dementia-friendly
  • Deliver community-based education and training to improve dementia care and support

See below for the many ways OkDCN can help support you and your loved ones.
