This chapter discusses the innovative interventions of a new multisite family caregiver intervention research program entitled Resources for Enhancing Alzheimer's Caregiver Health (REACH). It describes five types of caregiver interventions—individual information and support, group support and family systems, psychoeducational and skill-based, home-based environmental, and enhanced technology systems—that are being testing by the REACH program. A major strength of the REACH project is its use of the same standardized instruments across treatment sites to measure the effects of these interventions. The chapter concludes with a discussion of REACH efforts to tailor its interventions to meet the needs of different populations of family caregivers, and presents recommendations for future studies in caregiver intervention research and service delivery.
