Abstract

Much policy attention is now being focused on dementia, and this includes attention to the many thousands of unpaid family carers who support people with this most devastating of illnesses. Those carers are often very stressed by their caring responsibilities. A new coping strategy delivered to individual carers could help. We describe the strategy and show how a careful evaluation demonstrated that it was both effective and cost-effective.
