Predicting participation and adherence to a home environmental intervention among caregivers of persons with dementia.

Family Relations

Author: Gitlin, L. N., Corcoran, M., Winter, L., Boyce, A., Marcus, S.
Year: 1999
Type: Journal Article

Abstract:

This paper examines predictors of participation and adherence to a home environment intervention with 100 dementia family caregivers. Participation was measured as the number of home visits, adherence as the number of problems assessed and strategies used. Being older and female predicted participation. Adherence was predicted by older age, lower depression, and having a less dependent person to care for. The authors speculate that depression should be viewed as a moderator of treatment, not an outcome.
