Rhonda J.V. Montgomery, PHD, is an internationally recognized expert on family caregiving. She is Professor Emeritus at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee where she was the first person to occupy The Helen Bader Endowed Chair in Applied Gerontology. Prior to joining the faculty of UWM, she held positions at the University of Kansas, Wayne State University and University of Washington.
For more than 40 years Dr. Montgomery has conducted regional and national studies focused on public policy, the role of the family, and the role of staff in providing long term care. She has published over 100 articles and books and her work has been supported by the Hartford Foundation, the Langeloth Foundation, the Bader Foundations, the Alzheimer’s Association, the Administration on Community Living, the National Institutes of Health, and the Health Resources Services Administration. She has received numerous awards for her work including the 2010 Rosalyn Carter Leadership in Caregiving Award.
Her research led to the development of the Tailored Caregiver Assessment and Referral (TCARE) protocol which is a care management protocol designed to support family caregivers throughout the duration of their caregiving journey. Findings from randomized studies have shown that TCARE enhances the lives of caregivers and patients while lowering the cost of patient care.
