Resources for Enhancing Alzheimer's Caregiver Health, 1996-2001, Baseline and Follow-Up Data (ICPSR 3678) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

Resources for Enhancing Alzheimer's Caregiver Health (REACH) was established in 1995 to conduct social and behavioral research on interventions designed to enhance family caregiving, particularly in minority families, for persons with Alzheimer's Disease and related disorders. Baseline data (ICPSR 3253) were collected through randomized clinical trials at six sites: University of Alabama-Birmingham, The Research and Training Institute of the Hebrew Rehabilitation Center for Aged in Boston, University of Tennessee-Memphis, University of Miami, Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System and Stanford University, and Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. Interventions such as psychoeducational support groups, behavioral skills training programs, family-based systems interventions, environmental modifications, and technological computer-based information and communication services varied by site. This collection contains baseline data along with follow-up data at 6-, 12-, and 18-month intervals from each site with focus on the impact of the various intervention strategies on psychological distress, health status, health practices, and health care utilization. Also included are follow-up batteries, transition batteries (placement, bereavement, discontinued), and data reporting missed visits. Parts 1 through 5 contain screening data and responses to a short mental status questionnaire. Parts 6 through 34 contain baseline data along with follow-up data at 6, 12, and 18-month intervals and cover activities of daily living, anxiety, and caregiver health and health behaviors along with sociodemographic information. Also included are care recipient medications and sociodemographic information. Parts 35 through 40 contain tracking data and also include an examination of interventions.
