The purpose of this article was to help healthcare practitioners understand the dynamics of Alzheimer's care giving and to introduce an evidence-based practice intervention to improve the caregiver's self-efficacy. Over 5 million people in the United States are afflicted with Alzheimer's disease and require a caregiver to assist with all areas of daily activity. Adult care giving is challenging for the caregiver, who is often a family member with little to no knowledge or skill in rendering care. African-American caregivers encounter an even greater challenge by overcoming cultural bias inherent in racial disparity. Evidence-based practice interventions are helpful in successfully rendering care while minimizing stress and burden. Healthcare providers must consider the caregiver, the dynamics of care giving, and cultural norms, in the plan of care to successfully care for the Alzheimer's patient along the trajectory of the disease.
