Core Tip The “Coaching, Advocacy, Respite, Education, Relationship, and Simulation” (CARERS) Program is a comprehensive package of evidence-based interventions for informal carers comprised of 3 integrated components: group psychotherapy, Problem-Solving Techniques and skill acquisition for specific current challenging interactions in caregiving. The demonstrated outcomes are reduction of emotion-based coping, enhanced mastery, and reduced burden. The Program is structured, and requires active participation of carers as they acquire knowledge and develop caregiving competence. It is the first carer intervention to make systematic use of standardized patients to role play the spouse or parent with dementia, which allows for real-time coaching in managing current, specific, emotionally difficult interpersonal interactions.
