Intervention Protocol: In session #1, the interventionist, an occupational therapist (OT), meets with the caregiver and introduces the intervention goals. The OT provides and reviews a 3-ring binder which contains written educational materials about dementia, importance of taking care of self, communication strategies and other educational materials. Also provided and reviewed will be a copy of Mace and Rabins' book, The 36 Hour Day.

The OT will also observe interactions, noting communication and management style. The OT will also meet with the Veteran, observe social capacity using the Peavy Comportment scale and administer the Dementia Rating Scale (DRS-2).
