REACH: Resources for Enhancing Alzheimer’s Caregiver Health

REACH is a program for people who are caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or other dementia at home. The program makes it possible for people to live in their own homes longer, addressing problems related to caregiver health that often force people to move their loved ones to long term care facilities. If the caregiver is better able to manage the challenges of caregiving, the person he or she cares for will benefit as well.

REACH provides caregivers in Faribault County with specialized, one on one education and counseling.  Dementia care specialists work with each client individually to find workable solutions for such problems as caregiver stress, challenging behaviors, home safety, depression, self-care and social support.

Are you caring for a person with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia? To speak with one of our specialists or to learn more about the program, please call the Interfaith Office at 507-526-4684.
