This study will examine the effects of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program and the Living Well program, compared to a control group, to see if the programs might be associated with better immune function (response to current influenza vaccine), physical and emotional health, and well-being.


A considerable literature documents that a wide variety of psychosocial interventions can lessen the psychological burden of family or spousal dementia caregiving. Some caregiver intervention studies have included measures of self-reported physical health and sleep, and others have focused on improving inflammation in caregivers. The current study will add to this literature by examining the effects of two behavioral interventions on adaptive immune responses, particularly, antibody response to influenza vaccination, in older adult family caregivers.
