 Supportive and Psycho-educational Services
for Family or Professional Caregivers
of Older Adults
with Dementia/Alzheimer's Disease

Millions of older Americans are afflicted with
Alzheimer's Disease or a related disorder.  More than half of those affected
are cared for in the community by family members or professional
caregivers. The number of caregivers is expected to increase
significantly as the population ages. 
Caregivers of people with Alzheimer's or related disorders
often face significant emotional distress, as well as
extreme physical and/or financial difficulties.  In some cases,
caregivers must deal with the depression, hopelessness, agitation or hostility,
or even the emotional or physical abuse from
the person receiving care.

Support for the Caregiver during the care-giving process
is essential to the Caregiver's mental and physical
well being. 

DAZ Therapists use interventions
from an Evidence-Based Program called REACH,
Resources for Enhancing Alzheimer's Caregiver's Health,
when helping professional or family caregivers.

REACH interventions are designed to:

 - reduce caregiver burden and depression,

- improve caregivers' ability to provide self-care,

- provide caregivers with social support,

- and help caregivers learn how to manage
difficult behaviors in care recipients.
