Summary
Resources for Enhancing Alzheimer's Caregiver Health (REACH) was established in 1995 to conduct social and behavioral research on interventions designed to enhance family caregiving, particularly in minority families, for persons with Alzheimer's Disease and related disorders. Data were collected through randomized clinical trials at six sites: University of Alabama--Birmingham, the Research and Training Institute of the Hebrew Rehabilitation Center for Aged in Boston, University of Tennessee--Memphis, University of Miami, Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System and Stanford University, and Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. Interventions studied included psychoeducational support groups, behavioral skills training programs, family-based systems interventions, environmental modifications, and technological computer-based information and communication services. Although interventions varied by site, all sites collected the same data at the same time intervals. The impact of the various intervention strategies on psychological distress, health status, health practices, and health care utilization was assessed. Parts 1 through 5 contain screening data and a short mental status questionnaire. Parts 6 through 24 contain baseline data and cover activities of daily living, anxiety, and caregiver health and behaviors along with sociodemographic information. Also included are care recipient medications and sociodemographic information. Parts 25 and 26 contain tracking data and also include an examination of interventions
