The NYUCI family counseling program was developed to help spouses or partners of people with dementia who are living together at home. The goal is to help the primary caregiver--the spouse or partner--by involving family members in mutual support. The program includes individual counseling, family counseling, and ongoing telephone counseling as needed.
Throughout the United States and internationally, counselors, social workers, therapists, psychologists and other professionals have sought NYUCI training and certification so they could bring this unique and demonstrably effective intervention to spouse and partner caregivers in person. By making the NYUCI available via telehealth technology, the hope is that many more people around the world will provide and receive its benefits.
