Caregiving is rewarding, but it is also challenging. Research shows that unpaid or informal family caregivers are at increased risk for physical health, emotional and mental health, financial, and work-related problems. Research shows that developing coping strategies and having a community of support can improve the caregiver experience.
RCI provides caregivers with free coaching and other support that is anchored in research and monitored for effectiveness. Our programs are designed to promote the health, strength, and resilience of the caregivers we serve.
When an individual is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or dementia, their entire support system faces the implications of that complex diagnosis. The Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregivers develops programs specifically tailored to support dementia caregivers and help them care for their loved one – and care for themselves.
