Development and evaluation of an innovative self help coping program for dementia care givers (CarersCARE)

This project builds on findings of baseline data on the well-being and service usage of a small HACC sample population which demonstrated that carers of people with dementia (PWD) have high levels of stress and are caring for a very cognitively impaired group. In addition there was evidence that carers welcomed information and support which they were not accessing in a consistent way. This exciting research project involves a pilot randomised control trial of a new model of carer self help - CarersCARE - involving a DVD and a guidebook.
