Objective: This study aims to develop a home-based and comprehensive education program for family caregivers who take care of the elderly with dementia at home. Methods: The contents and approach methods of the preliminary program were developed by reviewing previous programs. The final program and intervention materials were determined by confirmation of the content validity by experts and clinical validity by caregivers of the elderly with dementia. Results: The intervention contents selected for caregivers consisted of 6 concepts, 15 themes, and 37 items. The six main concepts were as follows: emotional support, knowledge improvement, skills training, self-care ability, communication, and use of resource. The program was scheduled for six weeks, and home visits, supportive phone-calls, and group meetings were offered to caregivers. Intervention materials included workbook, manuals, and charts. Conclusions: An intensive and comprehensive intervention including diversified contents based on individual approaches should be utilized to decrease the negative experiences of caregivers who take care of the elderly with dementia.
