Summary
Built upon the findings of RESOURCES FOR ENHANCING ALZHEIMER'S CAREGIVER HEALTH, 1996-2001, BASELINE AND FOLLOW-UP DATA [ICPSR 3678], REACH II designed and tested a single multi-component intervention among family caregivers of persons with Alzheimer's disease or related disorders. The overall objectives were (1) to identify and reduce modifiable risk factors among diverse family caregivers of patients with Alzheimer's Disease or a related disorder, (2) to enhance the quality of care provided to the care recipients, and (3) to enhance the well-being of the caregivers. REACH II is the first project to simultaneously test a comprehensive caregiver intervention in three distinct racial/ethnic groups: Hispanic/Latino, Black/African-American, and White/Caucasian. The intervention was based on a risk-appraisal approach in which five areas of risk--depression, burden, self-care, social support, and patient problem behaviors--that are central to caregiver well-being and quality of life were matched to corresponding intervention components. These components included education, skills to manage troublesome care-recipient behaviors, social support, cognitive strategies for reframing negative emotional responses, and strategies for enhancing healthy behaviors and managing stress. Consistent with this approach, the primary outcome was a multivariate quality of life indicator that assessed caregiver depression, burden, self-care, social support, and patient problem behaviors. Two hallmarks of caregiver intervention studies--caregiver clinical depression and patient institutionalization--were assessed as secondary outcomes.
