The study period for program was six weeks including home visits, group meetings, and supportive phone-calls. A total of 63 caregivers were randomly assigned to the intervention group (n=31) or the control group (n=32). The intervention group showed significantly higher level of knowledge, self-efficacy, family coping, and preventive health behaviors and significantly lower level of family burden.
