REACH Social Support Scale

Now I would like to ask you some questions about your friends and family.

1. Overall, how satisfied have you been in the past month with the help you have received from family members, friends, or neighbors?


2. How many relatives, friends, neighbors, other than (CR) do you see or hear from at least one a month?


3. How many relatives, friends, neighbors, other than (CR) do you feel close to? That is, how many do you feel at ease with, can talk to about private matters, or can call on for help?


4. How many relatives, friends, neighbors, other than (CR) do you feel you can call on for help with chores, transportation, etc.?


5. When other people you know have an important decision to make, do they talk to you about it?


6. In the past month, how often has someone, such as a family member, friend or neighbor, other than (CR), provided transportation, pitched in to help you do something that needed to get done, like household chores or yardwork, and/or helped you with shopping?
