Key Points
"In the final assessment, an improvement in the overload and difficulties was confirmed, as was an increase in the caregivers' satisfaction level and an improvement in coping/problem-solving strategies. In the follow-up stage, the results tended to revert towards those of the initial assessment. The programme 'Living Together With Dementia' appeared to be a major contribution enabling family caregivers of people with dementia, although there is a need to develop an efficacy study using a more substantial sample. The programme contributed to a reduction in the overload and difficulties borne by the family caregivers of people with dementia at an early to moderate stage living at home and to increased caregiver satisfaction" Sousa 2020
