CARING FOR A LOVED ONE WITH ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE OR DEMENTIA? Help is in REACH
RCI REACH (Resources for Enhancing Alzheimer Caregiver Health)
Compassion, Care & Understanding
According to Laura J. Bauer, Director of National Initiatives for the RCI, "Family caregivers are the true backbone of the long-term care system in the United States. The aim of the RCI REACH program is to assure that these caregivers receive support services that have been proven clinically effective in reducing the burden and depression associated with caregiving."
RCI REACH is a FREE PROGRAM for family caregivers of persons with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia.
RCI REACH provides evidence-based education, a focus on safety for the patient, support for the caregiver, and skills building to help caregivers manage difficult patient behaviors and decrease their own stress.
RCI REACH is an in-home, tailored, caregiver support program consisting of 12 individual sessions in the home and by telephone over a six-month period.
"There are only four kinds of people in the world –
those who have been caregivers,
those who are currently caregivers,
those who will be caregivers and
those who will need caregivers."
- Rosalynn Carter
