Dealing with Dementia: Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving

The Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving https://www.rosalynncarter.org/ developed the Dealing with Dementia program which focuses on the behavioral component of the REACH II program. Using a train-the-trainer approach, family and professional caregivers attend a 4-hour workshop where they learn strategies and best practices for effectively managing problem behaviors and handling caregiver stress and burnout. Participants also receive a Dealing with Dementia guide that contains over 300 pages of information and solutions to problems caregivers face every day.
