THE PRODUCT TO BE DEVELOPED WILL OFFER A REALISTIC, STEP-BY-STEP APPROACH TO PREVENTING AND MANAGING PROBLEM BEHAVIORS AND PLACING THOSE BEHAVIORS IN THE LARGER CONTEXT OF THE DISEASE PRCESS. CAREGIVERS WILL LEARN A RANGE OF POTENTIAL SOLUTIONS, AND INFORMATION WILL BE PROVIDED CONCERNING HOW CAREGIVERS CAN LEARN TO ACCEPT BEHAVIOR CHANGES IN WAYS THAT MAINTAIN THE PATIENT'S DIGNITY AND SELF-ESTEEM. IN-DEPTH INFORMATION WILL BE PROVIDED, AND SPECIFIC SKILLS WILL BE DEVELOPED TO ENHANCE EFFECTIVENESS AND GIVE CAREGIVERS A SENSE OF CONFIDENCE IN A PARTICULAR AREA. THE FORMAT WILL BE AN IN-DEPTH ANALYSIS OF ONE BEHAVIOR PER VIDEOTAPE. THIS TYPE OF PRODUCT WOULD SUPPLEMENT AND ADD SIGNIFICANT DEPTH TO CURRENT PRODUCTS ON THE MARKET. WITH THE POTENTIALOF INCREASING NUMBERS OF ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE PATIENTS IN THEFUTURE, MORE EDUCATIONAL PRODUCTS MUST BE AVAILABLE TO FAMILY CAREGIVERS.
