Abstract

Most of the patients with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia may become dependent on the caregivers/family members with the natural progression of the disease severity. In addition, these patients frequently have Behavioral and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia (BPSD), which have been found to be associated with significant caregiver’s burden and increased Nursing Home (NH) placement. With the increasing severity of cognitive impairment of the patient and BPSD, the caregiver’s burden worsened further. The family members frequently experience protracted stress and physical demands, which consequently leads to psychiatric morbidity, physical health problems and poor quality-of-life among them.
