A pre-experimental study to assess the effectiveness of video assisted teaching program regarding dementia in terms of knowledge of primary care givers of dementia patients in selected old age home
In the present study the independent variable refers to Video Assisted Teaching.

To determine association between the knowledge score of primary care givers of Dementia patients with selected variables.Research design: A pre-experimental research design with pre and posttest without control group experimental approach was used. King’s goal attainment theory was used for research design.The Accessible population of the present study comprises of care givers of Dementia Patients those who are available for the research study from the old age home. Sample size of the present study consists of 30 Care Givers of Dementia Patients.Results: The improvement of mean scores for overall knowledge was 10.34% with the ‘t’ value of 3.295085 and found to be significant at the level of p<0.00171. It evidenced that developed video module was effective in improving the knowledge of care givers of Dementia patient about Dementia Care. It was evident that there was no significant association between the knowledge score with demographic variables like Age, gender, socioeconomic status, experience in years and service duration. 2 demographic variables like relation to the patient and source of knowledge were significant.Conclusion: Video assisted teaching ondementia care measures can successfully improve the knowledge of care givers off Dementia patient about Dementia Care.
