The purpose of this study was to examine the predictive relationship of predictors to burden experienced by family caregivers of community dwelling elders with dementia in Korea. This study used a cross-sectional design with non-probability dyads samples of elders and family caregivers in Korea. A convenience sample of 66 family caregivers of elders with dementia, aged over 60 and less than 24/30 on MMSE, was recruited from day care centers. Data was collected by face-to-face interview by two trained research assistants. Family caregivers were 76.8% female, with a mean age of 52.9 years. Almost one third of caregivers were spouses. Independent variables were Elder's cognitive impairment, dependency in physical activities of daily living (PADL), instrumental ADL, elders' wandering behavior and way-finding abilities. Six instruments were used; Revised Algase Wandering Scale-Community Version (RAWS-C), Way-finding Effectiveness Scale (WES), Physical Activities of Daily Living (PADL), Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL), MMSE, and Caregiver Worry Overload and Role Conflict (CWORC). RAWS-C, WES, and CWORC were translated into Korean and established semantic equivalence. Data were analyzed using multiple regression method. Only wandering was the strongest predictor to the family caregiving burden (b=.49, p<.05). The findings would guide researchers and clinicians to understand the wandering behavior of community dwelling elders with dementia cared by family caregivers experienced burden. Furthermore, these findings have implication for development of nursing intervention for wandering behavior to reduce the caregiving burden of family caregivers. Using a larger random sample, replication of this study is necessary to confirm the findings obtained.
