The prevalence of dementia in older adults is increasing.Due to cuts in funding for formal support,many families are having to provide care for a loved one with dementia at home.This systematic review gathered and synthesized information on interventions designed to enhance the well-being of caregivers of people with dementia.A search of the literature resulted in 36 relevant studies. Of these, 11 were rated as strong, 11 as moderate, 13 as weak, and 1 as poor.This paper focuses on the strong studies.No one intervention had an overall signi - cant impact on the well-being of caregivers. Although several interventions have been shown to be of bene t to caregivers, non-signi cant ndings were more common. Further investigation is greatly needed. Systematic reviews are an important means of guiding consumers and practitioners in making evidencebased decisions.
