What is our goal?

The aim of this research is to analyse the burden that the informal caregiver of a person with dementia presents (this is a general term to refer to a serious impairment of mental capacity that interferes with daily life, being an example the memory loss; Alzheimer's is the most common type of dementia). In turn, we intend to verify whether this overload of informal caregivers could lead to abusive behaviour.

In addition, we propose to study whether some variables such as the phase of the disease in which patients are and the appearance of conduct disorders can have any influence in the caregiver overload level and promote the appearance of abusive behaviours.

It will also be studied whether this overload in caregivers can be conditioned by aspects such as behavioural disorders (aggressiveness, ambulation) in the person with dementia, type of dementia (frototemporal dementia, Alzheimer's ...), phase of the disease and / or the attendance at a day centre.
