Abstract:

The authors examine the 6-month effects of the Environmental Skill-Building Program on caregiver well being and care recipient functioning and whether effects vary by caregiver gender, race, and relationship. After discussing the methods and results, they found out that the program reduces burden and enhances caregiver well being in select domains and has added benefit for women and spouses.
