One-on-One Education & Support for Caregivers

 Dementia Friendly North Central/East Texas is  proud to offer the Resources for All        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.
