This study examined the differences between two groups of caregivers following a novel intervention. Caregivers who reported clinically significant change scores on the COPM satisfaction scale engaged in more social activities and made comments indicating they had moved beyond the burdens of caregiving than caregivers who did not. These findings suggest the importance of addressing caregivers’ social participation to possibly increase caregiver satisfaction and decrease burden.
