How at-home visits reduce the burden of caregivers of people with dementia

At-home visits from a bilingual community health worker (CHW) may help reduce caregiver burden in underserved communities, according to researchers in California, USA.

Caregivers of people with dementia (PWD) are often required to provide around-the-clock care, which can lead to stress and negative health outcomes, the researchers noted. CHWs can help educate caregivers and implement strategies for stress reduction.
