Abstract

Background: Family caregivers experience considerable stress in their management of specific behaviors of persons with dementia. Objective: To examine the effects of an 8-week cognitive-behavioral (C-B) intervention tailored to the specific deficits of persons with dementia (PWDs) on selected outcomes for homebound caregivers and the functional statusof the PWD. Method: The design was a two-group randomized trial with measures taken atbaseline, 4 weeks, 8 weeks, and 12 weeks. Subjects were 65 caregiver-care recipient dyads. A majority of the 65 female caregivers were spouses with amean age of 66.5 years. Thirty-one women who received the C-B interventionwere compared to 34 who received the attention-only (A-O) placebo telephone calls. Coping strategies, perceptions of caregiver burden and satisfaction, and emotional acid physical health were assessed at the four points in time. Results: Results indicated a time by group interaction in depression, withless depression in the C-B than the A-O group. Both groups experienced a significant reduction in anxiety, and a significant consistent decrease in satisfaction over time. Both groups also demonstrated decreased use of emotion-focused coping strategies. Conclusion: The results suggest a plausible effectiveness of the C-B intervention in preventing the progression of depression. Suggestions for futureresearch are provided.
