There is reported to be no shortage of evidence that eHealth interventions for informal carers of people living with dementia can be effective on numerous fronts, including:
“ … improving a range of psychological outcomes in caregivers, such as the reduction of caregiver depression, anxiety, stress and burden, as well as increasing positive aspects of caregiving, caregiver self-efficacy, and confidence”. (p.52)
A recent literature review concerning the actual implementation of such eHealth interventions for informal caregivers of people with dementia, however, found little to go on, with a notable mismatch between research intentions and practical implementation.
