Innovative Interventions to Reduce Dementia Caregiver Distress: A Clinical Guide

Synopsis

Health researchers, practitioners, and policy makers provide strategies for assisting distressed caregivers and improving quality of life for both caregivers and dementia patients. The volume's 14 chapters outline current problems in the area of caregiving, and then develop several solution approaches such as the use of technological advances and the partnering of caregivers with primary care physicians. The volume includes interventions for a multicultural society; specific stressors of spousal caregivers: difficult behaviors, loss of sexual intimacy, and incontinence; and ethnic minority caregivers.
