Abstract

Dementia causes disability and dependence, and the care and support needed by the people with dementia have wide-ranging consequences for families, health-care systems, and society as a whole [1]. Providing care to a relative with dementia has been associated with worsening physical and emotional health [2-4]. Caregiving is a complex task as family caregivers usually encounter significant challenges, such as not living in the same house or neighborhood as their relative with dementia, having other responsibilities like looking after small children (sandwich generation caregiver), and working (paid job outside the home) [5,6]. Caregivers’ burden is a high-risk factor for early institutionalization of people with dementia and for greater use of resources [7,8].
