One-on-One Education & Support for Caregivers
Dementia Friendly North Central/East Texas is proud to offer the Resources for Alzheimer's Caregiver Health (REACH-TX) program. REACH-TX assigns a dementia educator to family members who are dealing with challenging behaviors like wandering or getting angry or agitated. The dementia educator works with families over several months to come up with ways to make caregiving less stressful.
