Is preparation for end of life associated with pre-death grief in caregivers of people with dementia?

Objectives: Family caregivers of people with dementia can experience loss and grief before death. We hypothesized that modifiable factors indicating preparation for end of life are associated with lower pre-death grief in caregivers. Design: Cross-sectional. Setting: Caregivers of people with dementia living at home or in a care home. Participants: In total, 150 caregivers, 77% female, mean age 63.0 (SD = 12.1). Participants cared for people with mild (25%), moderate (43%), or severe dementia (32%).
