FAMILIES: an effective healthcare intervention for caregivers of community dwelling people living with dementia

Objectives: Caregiving for a person with dementia (PWD) carries increased risk of poorer health and quality of life. Non-pharmacological interventions improve outcomes for caregivers of PWDs. We evaluated the efficacy of a modified New York University Caregiver Intervention (NYUCI), named FAMILIES, delivered to spousal and non-spousal caregivers of PWDs from diverse etiologies in a reduced number of sessions. Methods: Participants were 122 primary caregivers for community dwelling PWDs in Virginia.
