This systematic review included 11 studies examining the effects of caregiver–care recipient dyad exercise interventions on caregiver health outcomes. Benefits for caregivers were compared among those participating in dyadic exercise with a care recipient, those receiving a separate nonexercise intervention while their care recipients exercised, and those remaining in their role with usual care. Results suggest involvement in dyadic exercise produces both physical and psychosocial benefits.
