HFC (Hilarity For Charity)
We are excited to partner with HFC to provide a unique combination of family caregiver supports.
Selected participants will have access to six months of virtual coaching and support through the Resources Enhancing Alzheimer’s Caregiver Health (REACH) program. Data collected from this project will help RCI and HFC strengthen their program offerings, making them as effective as possible.
It is free to participate in this small pilot project, but space is limited. Sign up using the forms below.
REACH care coaches equip family caregivers with problem-solving and stress management skills. If you decide to sign up for this program, your care coach will work with you to help you manage your care-related problems. They will also coach you – via phone, video chat or email – how to identify stress and healthy ways to manage it.
To be eligible for the program, caregivers must meet the following criteria:
- Be providing care for a family member or friend with dementia.
- Be the primary care provider for their family member or friend with dementia. If not the primary care provider, at least providing a minimum of 4 hours of care a week.
- Have no plans to place their family member or friend in an assisted living facility or nursing home within 6 months.
- Be able to participate in a virtual program.
If you are interested in applying for REACH, please click here. You will be directed to RCI’s secure, online data system. Please use Google Chrome or Safari browsers to open the form.
If selected for the program, you will be contacted by a REACH Coach to confirm eligibility and participation, and then determine next steps.
HFC’s In-Home Care Grant program provides exceptional in-home care relief to families affected by Alzheimer’s, giving the primary caregiver support, rest and respite. Respite grants to eligible caregivers are limited in number and are granted on a monthly basis. If you are interested in learning more and applying, please click here.
Please contact RCI-REACH@rosalynncarter.org for any questions.
Please note that interested caregivers are not required to apply for both programs, nor would applying for both programs affect either application. Caregivers are encouraged to apply for whatever programs they are interested in.
