Caregivers

Caregivers

There are three options for caregivers who would like some added support, REACH, a Zoom meeting, and 1:1 Peer Support. Call Jill if you are interested.

REACH: stands for Resources for Enhancing Alzheimer’s Caregiver Health in the Community.  Caregivers will meet with trained coaches and learn to solve common caregiver challenges.  Meeting options are currently in-person one-to one coaching or via phone or ZOOM.  REACH is funded in part thru Administration on Community Living grant #90ADPI0060.

Caregiver Peer Support: There are caregivers who have probably experienced your challenges and can offer a non-judgmental ear.  Currently caregivers prefer phone calls so they can keep their loved ones safe

Late Night Zoom Meeting: We realize that many caregivers do not have the luxury of attending a meeting during the day.  We are looking to host a later in the evening meeting via zoom for those caregivers who can not leave their homes for meetings.

Contact Jill at the Gibson Center, 603-356-3231 or   for more information, or to sign up for 1:1 coaching.
