[en] There is a growing need for interventions designed to help professionals who care for people with dementia. Nevertheless, most existing programs are developed for professionals working in institutional settings. Thus, the objectives of our study are to evaluate the effectiveness of a three-day program aimed at training home help services (n=19). This intervention is targeted to enhance knowledge about dementia and help professionals to develop problem-solving strategies applicable to their everyday practice. Statistical analyses were based on self-report questionnaires administered before and after the intervention. Results indicate that participants find focused-problem coping to be more helpful after training and have better knowledge about dementia. Moreover, the program produces enhancement of job satisfaction and lower ageism scores. These findings are promising and suggest that a brief program can be effective to help caregivers of home-based services dealing with dementia problems.
