  • This study was conducted to find a practical implication regarding efficient and smooth service utilization including care burden reduction of family caregivers by empirically analyzing the factors influencing the dementia patient home care intention of family caregivers, based on Anderson's behavior model. For this study, the subjects and characteristics suitable for the study purpose were selected using the source data of "A Survey on the Dementia Recognition and Needs" targeting 26 cities and countries in Gyeonggi-do and then secondary analysis was conducted. This study targeted 539 dementia families, and based on Anderson's behavior model, variables related to predisposing factors, enabling factors and need factors were inserted, and hierarchical regression analysis was applied. The analysis result showed that at a significance level of 5%, the home care intention was high when family caregivers were not living in cities, they were spouses or children and their economic level was high as predisposing factors, and the dementia-related attitude was positive as a enabling factor, and the degree of dementia was mild and care burden was low as need factors. Moreover, need factors were relatively important variables among the three factors mentioned above. These findings demonstrate that for improving the home care intention, there is a need to construct a support strategy, which considers the degree of dementia and economic characteristics and develop diverse counseling and education programs for a positive attitude towards dementia and a differentiated strategy depending on regional and family characteristics.
