Resources for Enhancing Alzheimer's Caregiver Health (REACH)

Are you caring for someone with a dementia diagnosis? You are not alone. REACH is a proven approach used by trained caregiver consultants to support family members and others who are caring for someone with Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia. The goal is to:

1. Teach caregivers how to reduce stress, solve problems, and manage difficult behaviors the person with memory loss may display

2. Help caregivers feel confident in the care they provide and improve their ability to cope.

To speak with one of the specialists or learn more about the program, please call Elder Network in Olmsted County at 507-285-5272 or Winona or Wabasha Counties at 507-452-0580.

Support for this program is provided in part by the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.

As part of our 30th Anniversary celebration Elder Network undertook the role of creating a recognition award for 30 individuals 60 and over, who are giving back to the communities in which we serve in remarkable ways. These individuals are vital elements of our communities. Their involvement brings wisdom and insight to discussions, developments and social interactions. Having a breadth of experiences, elders bring a depth to their work and interactions born of many years of life. As a result, their contributions to our communities are rich and full. These are they who are making a significant, measurable contribution in the counties of Olmsted, Wabasha and Winona.
