- Functional dependence [ Time Frame: Change in functional dependence score between baseline (pre-randomization) and 4 months post-randomization ]The metric for the primary outcome measure is score on the 15-item Caregiver Assessment of Function and Upset (CAFU) measure. The CAFU is adapted from the Functional Independence Measure; each of the 15 items is an activity of daily living (ADL) or instrumental activity of daily living (IADL). Each ADL and IADL item is scored on a 7-point scale ranging from completely independent (score of 7) to needing complete help (score of 1). Person-level functional dependence scores are calculated by summing scores across all items and dividing by the number of items.
