A tremendous amount of stress and anxiety is experienced by caregivers of older adults with dementia. Caregivers often endure both psychological and medical illnesses and there are significant barriers (e.g., caregiver responsibilities) preventing them from attending traditional psychotherapy. In this episode, we talk to Dr. Geoff Tremont, a board-certified neuropsychologist and the developer of a telephone-based intervention that has been shown to enhance the well-being of caregivers.
