Preliminary findings will be reported for the evaluation of the effects of Nurse Care Manager (NCM) services to persons with dementia on family caregiver outcomes. The 3-year project to develop and evaluate a seamless dementia specific service delivery system for rural elders uses Nursing Outcomes Classification (NOC) outcomes; "caregiver well-being", "caregiver stressors", and "endurance potential" to assess the effects of the intervention. The theoretical framework underlying the role and interventions of the NCM are role transition and the PLST model. The role of the NCM is to help the caregiver meet the changing needs of the care recipient with dementia. The demonstration is being conducted in 8 rural counties. The counties were paired in four regions with random selection of 4 counties in the pair given NCM services and 4 counties given traditional services offered through the Area Agencies on Aging. All persons with dementia and their caregivers living in the designated counties are eligible for participation in the project. Referrals were made from Alzheimer Associations, county case management services, friends and community members. Data for 69 caregivers were collected at baseline and two subsequent 6 months intervals. Data from baseline and the first 6- month data collection will be presented. The NCM collects the data for persons in the experimental counties and a non- nurse local project facilitator collects the data in the control counties. At baseline, caregivers in the NCM caseload were more stressed, had lower well-being, and more compromised endurance potential than subjects in the control counties. Differences in caregiver outcomes at 6 months from baseline and between the experimental and control counties, controlling for baseline differences, will be analyzed and presented.
