Abstract

Caregiver burnout in dementia is concerned with physical and emotional exhaustion, involving the development of a negative self-concept and an unhealthy or resentful attitude toward the caregiving role. This paper explores two interventions aimed at alleviating the psychological strain on carers, and resulting in a supportive environment for carers to perform their role. The paper explores key concepts involved in the facilitation of behavioural change, and the promotion of emotional growth through selfexpression cumulating in a better quality of care for the person living with dementia.
