An Intervention That Delays Institutionalization of Alzheimer's Disease Patients: Treatment of Spouse-Caregivers.
Mittelman, Mary S.; And Others
Gerontologist, v33 n6 p730-40 Dec 1993
Randomly assigned spouse-caregivers of Alzheimer's disease patients to treatment group (individual and family counseling, support group participation, and ad hoc consultation) or control group (only routine support). Treatment group had less than half as many nursing home placements as control group. Placement also was affected by patient's need for assistance, patient income, and patient and caregiver ages.
