Explore if this training program is also effective in The Netherlands.
Randomized controlled trial study.
The training turned out to be feasible in a holiday location. Quantitative outcomes after three months: caregivers experienced less limitations and male and lower educated caregivers had higher quality of life. Qualitive effects included better skills to cope with all changes that come with dementia, more acceptance and lowering of psychological stress.
'The More at Home' caregiver training program is feasible and effective and should be part of regular care. In the Netherlands however, there are different reimbursement systems for caregivers and patients which hinders implementation. Policy makers should realize that with dementia the well- being of the patient is depending on the well-being and skills of the caregiver.
