Títol variant: Efects of an individual home-based physical exercise program in caregivers of OF alzheiimer patients : a pilot study
Data: 2009
Resum: Alzheimer's disease not only affects the patients who suffer from it; it also has a marked impact on their family environment. The caregiver's quality of life and their emotional well-being are seriously affected. Many earlier studies have studied this issue from different perspectives: cognitive-behavioral, psycho-educational models, individual and/or group interventions, programmes based on physical activity, etc. . In many cases, the caregiver's main handicap or difficulty is attending these programmes. This study aims to assess the applicability and effectiveness of an individual home-care exercise programme as regards the psychological profile and self-perceived burden of a group of 32 informal caregivers. A high level of attendance was achieved and significant improvements in depression levels were achieved. The improvement expected in the self-perceived burden and anxiety levels were not significant. This programme's main contribution is its capacity to help female caregivers stick to physical activities.
