HFC x Rosalynn Carter Institute Pilot Project To Support Alzheimer’s and Dementia Caregivers
We are excited to partner with the Rosalynn Carter Institute to provide a unique combination of support to Alzheimer’s and dementia family caregivers: (1) virtual coaching and (2) respite relief. Caregivers can apply for REACH Virtual Coaching and/or to the HFC In-Home Care Grant Program.
Interested caregivers are not required to apply for both programs and are encouraged to apply for whichever program interests them. Applying for both programs will not affect either application. Data collected from this project will help RCI and HFC strengthen their program offerings, making them as effective as possible!
It is free to participate in this small pilot project, but space is limited. Learn more about each program below:
Selected participants will have access to six months of virtual coaching and support through the Resources Enhancing Alzheimer’s Caregiver Health (REACH) program.
REACH Care Coaches equip Alzheimer’s and dementia family caregivers with problem-solving and stress management skills. If you decide to sign up for this program, your care coach will work with you to help you manage your specific care-related problems. They will also coach you – via phone, video chat or email - how to identify stress and healthy ways to manage it.
To be eligible for coaching, caregivers must meet the following criteria:
