European Study of Unpaid Dementia Carer Burden (JAMDA)

Summary

The following article covers a study of people with dementia and their informal carers supported by community services (whether living at home or receiving day care or respite care) across eight European countries. The investigation explored any association(s) between carer-burden and the characteristics of (i) the informal carer, (ii) the person with dementia, and (iii) the care support network available. The aim is to supply appropriately tailored interventions to reduce the burden of care by supporting informal carers of people with dementia who are struggling on the margins of admission into long-term care.
