Examined the effects of an intervention on the sense of competence of primary caregivers and the number of admissions for a total of 119 dementia patients. Controlled analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) revealed no significant overall effect of the intervention on change in primary caregiver's sense of competence between pre- and posttest. A subgroup of female caregivers sharing a household with the dementia patient showed a significantly more favorable change in sense of competence in the experimental group compared with the control group. There were significantly fewer admissions to a nursing or retirement home in the experimental group than in the control group.
