This chapter describes the Palliative Excellence in Alzheimer Care Efforts (PEACE) programme. The programme was initially conceptualized as a primary care model within a geriatrics clinic focusing on community-dwelling older adults with cognitive impairment. The objective was to enhance patients' and caregivers' quality of life through improved symptom assessment and management, mitigate functional decline, and delineate current and future health care wishes for patients. Caregivers benefited from: educational opportunities to understand the disease process better; attention to their psychological well-being; and connections being made to local, state, and federal resources, including services offered through community and professional organizations.
