Overview

The New York University Caregiver Intervention (NYUCI) aims to support caregivers of PwD by providing a four-fold treatment consisting of:

  • Two individual counseling sessions tailored to each caregiver’s specific situation
  • Four family counseling sessions with the primary caregiver and family members selected by that caregiver
  • Participation in a weekly support group

And “Ad-hoc counseling”, meaning the continuous availability, by telephone, of counselors to caregivers and families to help them deal with crises and the changing nature of the PwD’s symptoms over the course of the disease.
