We examined whether problem-solving therapy (PST) would prevent or treat burden among family caregivers of persons with a recent diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or early-stage dementia (AD). Relative to caregiver's receiving nutritional training (NT), PST improved caregiver's perceived burden (worry) and dementia-related behavioral burden levels, over time.
