Résumé : The number of demented patients has increased significantly in recent years. The many challenges that dementia causes increase the stress of their caregivers and lead to shortening the time to institutionalization compared to the general population. A psychoeducational program for these accompanying persons was set up in Brussels. This type of program resulted in a 557-day delay in institutionalization in New York City. The objective of our study was to check whether our program also has such an impact, but also to see its potential effect on the psychobehavioral disorders of patients and the burden of caregivers.
