Brief description This RCT of a physical activity intervention for carers and care recipients aims to determine whether physical activity (designed for carer and care recipient to do together) can reduce depression in older carers. The intervention includes a physiotherapist assessment, Otago and Otago-Plus exercise programs in carer/care recipient’s home over six-months. An economic evaluation will be undertaken. If successful, the intervention could be broadly applied within the carer support service system.
