Abstract

The aim of this study is to investigate the experience of primary caregivers (men and women) of Alzheimer Disease dementia, in order to tailor program and project to avoid care giving burden. A qualitative phenomenological method was used and the sample was defined by data saturation. Interviews were carried out and recorded in a day care Centre, transcribed verbatim. The analysis was conducted coding common themes and phrases. Six main themes emerged. Our results are similar to those existing in literature, showing care givers as individual in great danger physically and mentally. In the light of the study it is possible to tailor a nursing model in order to improve quality of life and decrease the burden of caregivers, this model should be implemented and analized.
