Adult day programs; Caregiver burden; Elder daycare
This article reports the results of a 1998 pilot study involving 26 caregivers that have relatives suffering from some type of dementia. The purpose of the study is to determine if an adult day program that specializes in helping those afflicted with dementia can serve as an effective way of providing respite care to caregivers, reducing reported levels of direct responsibility and care. According to study results, adult day program alone was not found to be a complete form of respite; however, over-all caregiver satisfaction was strong and the adult day program was viewed as a positive way to provide partial respite to caregivers. © 2000 by The Haworth Press, Inc.
