The results will appear in today's problem of The Gerontologist. The experts found that caregivers experienced lower exposure to care-related stressors and more positive experiences on times when their family with dementia used ADS. On these days, caregivers also were exposed to more non-care stressors. Yet the overall effect of the usage of adult day providers on caregivers was lowered anger and reduced impact of non-treatment stressors on depressive symptoms. ADS days were associated with a small upsurge in non-care stressors, however caregivers reacted to high degrees of non-treatment stressors with much less depressive mood on Advertisements days than non-ADS times, so we conclude that the usage of ADS has a buffering influence on the relation of non-treatment stressors on depressive disposition, said Zarit.At 3:30 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 20, Kraus will present Cognitive-Sensory Interaction in the Neural Encoding of Music and Speech as part of a panel on music-vocabulary interactions in the mind at the annual conference of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
