Background and Purpose: Caring for individuals with dementia poses a significant caregiver bur-den. Caregiver burden is associated with nega-tive outcomes. Studies in Europe and North America have indicated that caregiver education effectively decreases the burden experienced by the caregivers of dementia patients, in Japan, however, no study has been carried out. We studied the effects of systematic caregiver educa-tion to the caregiver burden in dementia pa-tients.

Subjects and Methods: Subjects were 41 demen-tia patients who were given a short-term admis-sion in our hospital for evaluaion and their principal caregivers.
