GA REACH

To learn as much as possible about the experiences of families with Alzheimer’s or related dementia in this region, to reduce caregiver burden and improve or sustain caregiver physical and emotional health. This is accomplished by identifying the areas that the caregiver feels are their most challenging or where they need help and to link families to the resources/programs that are most appropriate to meet their needs. Once the family is invited to participate in the REACH program, they receive coaching in problem solving skills and how to access information and resources to empower them to continue to cope with their challenges even after the program is ended. Participation in the full GA REACH Project consists of twelve home or telephone based sessions, participation in five telephone discussions with other caregivers.
