“…Of note, 85.7% of participants who completed the survey rated the quality of the service as "excellent" and 88.1% would "definitely recommend the program to a friend". Lack of validation of the satisfaction questionnaire is a limitation of this study; however, our results concur with evidence from small, qualitative studies evaluating psychoeducation in early stage dementia (Fitzsimmons and Buettner, 2003). The vast majority of health education in dementia is directed at carers; our results show that consumers should be targeted directly, as they are able to benefit in terms of knowledge acquisition.…”

“…Surprisingly, several of the indicators of psychosocial well-being (i.e., self-efficacy, self-esteem, perceived stress, perceived quality of life) did not show significant change during this project. During the authors' pilot work, these indicators of well-being were significantly enhanced (Fitzsimmons & Buettner, 2003). The authors believe this Health Promotion course for individuals with dementia was a unique program offering that would have had even stronger statistical impact if the region had not experienced a natural disaster during the project.…”

“…Two interventions were simply described and no measurable outcomes detailed (Davies-Abbott & MacDonald, 2012; Lee, 2011), and four interventions only provided participant evaluations (Laakkonen et al, 2013; LaBarge & Trtanj, 1995; Martin, Turner, Wallace, Stanley, et al, 2013; Zarit et al, 2004). One article reported qualitative outcomes (Sims & McCrum, 2012), and four interventions reported quantitative outcomes but these studies did not include a control group comparison (Brodaty & Low, 2004; Fitzsimmons & Buettner, 2003; Gaugler et al, 2011; Roberts & Silverio, 2009). Only four interventions have been evaluated in studies which included control group comparisons (Buettner & Fitzsimmons, 2009; Joosten-Weyn Banningh, Prins, et al, 2011; Joosten-Weyn Banningh, Roelofs, et al, 2011; Logsdon, McCurry, & Teri, 2007; Logsdon et al, 2010; Troyer, Murphy, Anderson, Moscovitch, & Craik, 2008).…”

“…Only two out of the 12 interventions for people with dementia were identified as self-management programs (Laakkonen et al, 2012; Laakkonen et al, 2013; Martin, Turner, Wallace, Stanley, et al, 2013). Three interventions emphasized psychoeducation (Fitzsimmons & Buettner, 2003; Sims & McCrum, 2012; Zarit et al, 2004), and two interventions described a more psychotherapeutic focus (Brodaty & Low, 2004; Roberts & Silverio, 2009). The other five interventions were identified as support groups (Davies-Abbott & MacDonald, 2012; Gaugler et al, 2011; LaBarge & Trtanj, 1995; Lee, 2011; Logsdon et al, 2007; Logsdon et al, 2010).…”
