About

The investigators will conduct a hybrid efficacy-effectiveness trial intended to address these gaps by testing the efficacy-effectiveness of two multi-family group interventions, and on 250 English-speaking adults: Savvy Caregiver Express™ (3-session, newly piloted in Los Angeles County for feasibility) and Savvy Caregiver Program (original 6-session evidenced-based intervention), across post-intervention, 3- and 6-months.

Full description

A number of epidemiological studies, systematic reviews, and consensus reports highlight the importance of non-pharmacological, sociobehavioural interventions to address the health, psychological, and social effects of caregiving for persons living with dementia, and the need for tangible information and resources. The investigators will conduct a hybrid efficacy-effectiveness trial intended to address these gaps by testing the efficacy-effectiveness of two multi-family group interventions, and on 250 English-speaking adults: Savvy Caregiver Express™ (3-session, newly piloted in Los Angeles County for feasibility) and Savvy Caregiver Program (original 6-session evidenced-based intervention), across post-intervention, 3- and 6-months. It is hypothesized that no differences (comparable effects) between the programs in their efficacy/effectiveness and moderating conditions. Focus groups (\~25 participants) will be conducted to ascertain program acceptability and satisfaction. The analyses will include a multiple linear mixed-effects modeling for our trial outcomes, and thematic analyses for our focus group interview data.
