*  Compassion Fatigue: An Application of the Concept to Informal Caregivers of Family Members with Deme
... ntia. Caregivers for family members with dementia may be at risk for developing compassion fatigue. Informal caregivers for family members with dementia who develop compassion fatigue may terminate the caregiving relationship though premature nursing home admission or relinquishing care to another family member, and there may also be increased risk for abuse or neglect. It is likely, therefore, that informal caregivers are at risk for compassion fatigue. Informal caregivers for family members with dementia may be at an even greater risk for compassion fatigue than formal care providers given the emotional attachment to the care recipient. Without a sense of satisfaction in caring, however, the caregiver is at risk for compassion fatigue. Traumatic Memories We propose that the informal caregiver may develop compassion fatigue without traumatic memories, and this is where application of Figley’s model to informal caregivers may diverge from formal healthcare ...

About FCA. The effects of caregiving on caregiver health. The importance of physician assessment of the caregiver. The Effects of Caregiving on Caregiver Health. Caregiver health is becoming a public health issue, as the numbers of caregivers grow and the average duration of caregiving is four years. Health effects can be physical, mental, emotional, or a combination of all three:. Emotional Effects. Sick caregivers cannot effectively look after chronically sick patients so we must find ways to keep caregivers healthy. As well as the studies supporting the adverse effects on health I have described above, there are other studies that make it abundantly clear that access to a good social support network—family and friends, community resources, religious groups, volunteers—and respite care have a strongly positive effect on the mental, physical and emotional health of the caregiver.

July 20, 2012 Stroke caregivers are at risk for depression July 20, 2012 Caregivers of stroke survivors are at risk for developing depression and complications from chronic stress, according to a study published by researchers at the Loyola University Chicago Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing MNSON in the latest issue of Biological Research for Nursing. This burden places the caregivers at risk for depression, anxiety and sleep disturbances, which can harm quality of life and heighten their risk for other health problems. The women completed surveys about perceived stress, caregiver burden, social support, quality of sleep and depressive symptoms. Results revealed that women had high levels of perceived stress and caregiver burden and poor quality of sleep. The study also found that the burden of caring for a stroke victim increases the risk of depressive symptoms and stress. Those who had high symptoms of depression also had decreasing levels of cortisol during the day while women ...

... Howard Gleckman. Half of Family Caregivers are Providing Nursing Services. October 5, 2012 by. Howard Gleckman. Being a family caregiver is a lot harder than it used to be. Providing personal assistance, such as help eating or bathing, is tough enough. But now, many family caregivers are acting more like nurses. According to a new survey by the AARP Public Policy Institute and the United Hospital Fund, nearly half of all family caregivers are providing medical or nursing services to their loved ones. Yet, the medical system seems perfectly OK with leaving this work to family members who often have no training at all. Often, these caregivers are providing this high level of assistance in an effort to keep loved ones with chronic disease at home and out of care facilities. More than half report doing so because they cannot afford paid care and no-one else is available to help.. About 40 percent of family caregivers surveyed were adult children caring for parents and ...

The effects of caregiving on caregiver health. The Effects of Caregiving on Caregiver Health. Health effects can be physical, mental, emotional, or a combination of all three:. Emotional Effects. As well as the studies supporting the adverse effects on health I have described above, there are other studies that make it abundantly clear that access to a good social support network—family and friends, community resources, religious groups, volunteers—and respite care have a strongly positive effect on the mental, physical and emotional health of the caregiver. How can caregivers access much needed help. I can’t help comparing our system with Britain, and the time when my mother became ill. A somewhat similar system exists at Kaiser Permanente—when I worked there I had easy, one-stop access to obtaining resources for my patients both inside Kaiser and in the community, and there were medical social workers and a home care team. Caregivers are our early warning system and must be listened ...

The Crisis of Cancer: Psychological Impact on Family Caregivers. The Crisis of Cancer: Psychological Impact on Family Caregivers. The Crisis of Cancer: Psychological Impact on Family Caregivers. Studies document that spouses are as distressed as cancer patients and that spousal and patient distress are correlated. Factors that may predict high levels of spousal distress include: disease stage; emotional adjustment of the patient; gender, age, and other characteristics of the spouse; marital adjustment; and family functioning. Future studies should explore the role of mediating factors, such as coping style, marital adjustment, and family functioning, on the relationship between illness demands or prognosis and distress. In a recent study of spousal care-givers, Toseland, Blanchard, and McCallion reported that fear of the spouse dying was the major concern of spouses, even when the patients were essentially asymptomatic.

... Published on Family Caregiver Alliance https://www.caregiver.org. Caregiver Depression: A Silent Health Crisis. One of today’s all-too silent health crises is caregiver depression. And former caregivers may not escape the tentacles of this condition after caregiving ends. A recent study found that 41% of former caregivers of a spouse with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia experienced mild to severe depression up to three years after their spouse had died. Caregiving does not cause depression, nor will everyone who provides care experience the negative feelings that go with depression. But in an effort to provide the best possible care for a family member or friend, caregivers often sacrifice their own physical and emotional needs and the emotional and physical experiences involved with providing care can strain even the most capable person. People experience depression in different ways; the type and degree of symptoms vary by individual and can change over time. A ...

Rosalyn Carter once opined, “ There are only four kinds of people in the world – those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers and those who will need caregivers. ” With this compassionate outlook on life, the former First Lady started the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving RCI in 1987. Statistics claim that there are more than 65 million family caregivers to dependent elders in the United States. Again, according to statistics, in-home care giving saves our country an estimated $450 billion/year. It has also been well documented that caregivers have shorter lifespans than non-caregivers do.  Caregiver “burnout” is very real as are compassion fatigue and post-traumatic stress. And yet, caregivers are probably one of the more under-served population in our country. In part, this is because when one is in caregiving modality, it is difficult to see beyond the immediate needs of one’s ...

... Family Caregivers of Older Adults. Note:. Caregivers and Depression. By Morningside Ministries on January 6, 2012 at 11:14 AM. Did you know that 50% of caregivers of Alzheimer’s patients have felt depressed at some point in the disease process? To be honest, I thought the percentage would be even higher. I think about the lack of sleep caregivers experience when their loved one with dementia is up wandering during the night…. The mission of mmLearn.org is to provide caregivers with online training and education that improve the quality of care received by older adults.

... enThesis. Upload and Search Theses and Dissertations - OpenThesis. Primary caregivers' experience of raising children with autism : a phenomenological perspective. In this qualitative study, four primary caregivers of autistic children were interviewed regarding their experiences of the diagnostic process, their post-diagnostic adjustment, and how helping professionals can improve their service rendering to these families. This study utilised a phenomenological approach to look at primary caregivers as the best-informed authority to explore and describe their lived realities and experiences of raising their autistic children in South Africa. The rationale for a phenomenological approach in this study is that such an interpretative inquiry enables material to be collected and analysed within the specific context of the subjective realities of primary caregivers of autistic children in South Africa. The researcher utilised semi-structured, in-depth, face-to-face interviews as ...

Don’t forget to care for the caregiver. SanDiegoUnionTribune.com. Health. Approximately 66 percent of family caregivers are women, according to a 2009 study conducted by the National Alliance for Caregiving NAC in collaboration with AARP. Working middle-aged women are not the only ones facing health challenges as a result of caregiving: A 2010 MetLife study of working caregivers demonstrates a clear impact of caregiving on the health of employees ages 18 to 39, as well as those ages 50 and older. According to the MetLife study, employed caregivers were more likely to report their own health as fair or poor in general, and significantly more likely to report major health conditions like diabetes, hypertension or pulmonary disease regardless of age or gender. Twenty percent of employed female caregivers over 50 years old report symptoms of depression, and younger female caregivers say they experience stress at home. Employed caregivers also find it more difficult to ...

(1/2862) Caregiver behaviors and resources influence child height-for-age in rural Chad.

The purpose of this study was to identify caregiver characteristics that influence child nutritional status in rural Chad, when controlling for socioeconomic factors. Variables were classified according to the categories of a UNICEF model of care: caregiving behaviors, household food security, food and economic resources and resources for care and health resources. Sixty-four households with 98 children from ages 12 to 71 mo were part of this study. Caregivers were interviewed to collect information on number of pregnancies, child feeding and health practices, influence on decisions regarding child health and feeding, overall satisfaction with life, social support, workload, income, use of income, and household food expenditures and consumption. Household heads were questioned about household food production and other economic resources. Caregiver and household variables were classified as two sets of variables, and separate regression models were run for each of the two sets. Significant predictors of height-for-age were then combined in the same regression model. Caregiver influence on child-feeding decisions, level of satisfaction with life, willingness to seek advice during child illnesses, and the number of individuals available to assist with domestic tasks were the caregiver factors associated with children's height-for-age. Socioeconomic factors associated with children's height-for-age were the amount of harvested cereals, the sources of household income and the household being monogamous. When the caregiver and household socioeconomic factors were combined in the same model, they explained 54% of the variance in children's height-for-age, and their regression coefficients did not change or only slightly increased, except for caregiver's propensity to seek advice during child illnesses, which was no longer significant. These results indicate that caregiver characteristics influence children's nutritional status, even while controlling for the socioeconomic status of the household.  (+info)

(2/2862) The economic value of informal caregiving.

This study explores the current market value of the care provided by unpaid family members and friends to ill and disabled adults. Using large, national data sets we estimate that the national economic value of informal caregiving was $196 billion in 1997. This figure dwarfs national spending for formal home health care ($32 billion) and nursing home care ($83 billion). Estimates for five states also are presented. This study broadens the issue of informal caregiving from the micro level, where individual caregivers attempt to cope with the stresses and responsibilities of caregiving, to the macro level of the health care system, which must find more effective ways to support family caregivers.  (+info)

(3/2862) Involving consumers in assessing service quality: benefits of using a qualitative approach.

Although important to users, practice standards rarely incorporate users' views of care provided. These views are a valuable source of information, even though there are limits to their value. To improve the standards of care in a 20 bed hospital elderly care unit caring for acute medical conditions a qualitative approach was used. Patients' and carers' perceptions of care and problems with the process of care in the unit were elicited with a specially designed semistructured interview schedule in 83 separate tape recorded interviews with a research nurse in patients' homes. In all, 50 patients and 35 carers were interviewed between 6 June 1991 and 28 May 1992. Of the 50 patients, 33 were female; seven patients were aged less than 80 years, 16, 80-85; 21, 86-90; and six over 90. A total of 16 patients lived with spouses or other carers, two with non-carers, and 32 lived alone, 18 of whom received informal care. Content analysis of the interviews disclosed patients' and carers' general satisfaction with individualised professional care and planning of follow up services on discharge but dissatisfaction in the lack of information about and involvement in treatment and care and about specific staff notes. These findings have prompted remedial changes in clinical practice in the unit; they have also formed the structure of a criterion based survey of practice. The authors conclude that the qualitative approach suited elderly users and also provided the basis for the findings to be incorporated into a continuous audit cycle through a process of feedback and standard setting.  (+info)

(4/2862) Correlates of child care providers' interpretation of pediatric AIDS: implications for education and training.

A total of 212 child care providers residing in a southeastern state were surveyed about their knowledge and attitudes toward AIDS and child care policies. Providers' feeling about caring for an HIV-infected child, rather than their perceived knowledge of AIDS, were most consistently correlated with their factual knowledge and positive attitudes toward AIDS. These results suggest that providers may pay more attention to AIDS information and become more accepting of recommended child care policies when they are able to personalize AIDS within the context of their work with young children. Implications for education are discussed within the context of the Health Belief Model.  (+info)

(5/2862) Longer term quality of life and outcome in stroke patients: is the Barthel index alone an adequate measure of outcome?

OBJECTIVES: To consider whether the Barthel Index alone provides sufficient information about the long term outcome of stroke. DESIGN: Cross sectional follow up study with a structured interview questionnaire and measures of impairment, disability, handicap, and general health. The scales used were the hospital anxiety and depression scale, mini mental state examination, Barthel index, modified Rankin scale, London handicap scale, Frenchay activities index, SF36, Nottingham health profile, life satisfaction index, and the caregiver strain index. SETTING: South east London. SUBJECTS: People, and their identified carers, resident in south east London in 1989-90 when they had their first in a life-time stroke aged under 75 years. INTERVENTIONS: Observational study. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Comparison and correlation of the individual Barthel index scores with the scores on other outcome measures. RESULTS: One hundred and twenty three (42%) people were known to be alive, of whom 106 (86%) were interviewed. The median age was 71 years (range 34-79). The mean interval between the stroke and follow up was 4.9 years. The rank correlation coefficients between the Barthel and the different dimensions of the SF36 ranged from r = 0.217 (with the role emotional dimension) to r = 0.810 (with the physical functioning dimension); with the Nottingham health profile the range was r = -0.189 (with the sleep dimension, NS) to r = -0.840 (with the physical mobility dimension); with the hospital and anxiety scale depression component the coefficient was r = -0.563, with the life satisfaction index r = 0.361, with the London handicap scale r = 0.726 and with the Frenchay activities index r = 0.826. CONCLUSIONS: The place of the Barthel index as the standard outcome measure for populations of stroke patients is still justified for long term follow up, and may be a proxy for different outcome measures intended for the assessment of other domains.  (+info)

(6/2862) Use of the GDS-15 geriatric depression scale as a screening instrument for depressive symptomatology in patients with Parkinson's disease and their carers in the community.

OBJECTIVES: To assess the level of depressive symptomatology in a community based group of patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) and their carers and to investigate the patient characteristics that might predict carer distress. METHODS: The GDS-15 geriatric depression scale was used to measure self-rated depressive symptoms in a group of 132 subjects with clinically probable PD randomly selected from a community-based disease register. Disease severity was assessed by the Webster scale and cognitive function by the CAMCOG test. Carers of the patients, who in this study were all spouses, were also asked to complete the GDS-15. RESULTS: A total of 64% of our group of patients and 34% of carers scored within the 'depressed' range on the GDS-15. Patients with high levels of depressive symptoms tended to have more severe disease, disease of longer duration and more impaired cognitive function. The GDS score of the carer was best predicted by the GDS score of the patient being cared for. Less than 10% of patients and carers were being treated with antidepressant medication. CONCLUSIONS: This community-based study confirms the high level of depressive symptoms in PD suggested by hospital- and clinic-based studies. Depression in patients appears to be related to disease severity and cognitive impairment. An important determinant of carer distress and mood disorder, as reflected by the GDS score, appears to be the level of depression expressed by the patient being cared for. Despite high levels of depressive symptoms in both patients and carers, very few subjects were in receipt of antidepressant drug therapy.  (+info)

(7/2862) A survey of attitudes and knowledge of geriatricians to driving in elderly patients.

OBJECTIVE: To assess the attitudes of consultant members of the British Geriatrics Society to elderly patients driving motor vehicles. DESIGN: An anonymous postal survey assessing knowledge and attitudes to driving in elderly people. A standardized questionnaire was used and five case histories were offered for interpretation. SETTING: The study was co-ordinated from a teaching hospital. SUBJECTS: The 709 consultant members of the British Geriatrics Society. Four hundred and eighteen responses were obtained, which represents a 59% response rate. RESULTS: 275 Respondents (68%) correctly realised that a person aged 70 had a duty to inform the Driving and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) about their eligibility to drive. The remainder did not. Most (315; 75%) believed that the overall responsibility for informing the DVLA was with the patient. If a patient was incapable of understanding advice on driving because of advanced dementia, 346 (83%) would breach patient confidentiality and inform the authority directly. Where a patient was fully capable of understanding medical advice but ignored it, 72% of geriatricians would have legitimately breached patient confidentiality and informed the DVLA. Most geriatricians (88%) saw their main role as one of providing advice on driving to patients and their families. Enforcing DVLA regulations was not seen as an appropriate function, unless the patient was a danger to themselves or other drivers. CONCLUSIONS: There is a wide variation in knowledge of driving regulations and attitudes to driving in elderly patients. Better education of geriatricians should improve awareness of when elderly drivers can safely continue to drive.  (+info)

(8/2862) Disagreement in patient and carer assessment of functional abilities after stroke.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The aims of this study were to describe differences between functional ability assessments made by stroke patients and their informal carers and to investigate the psychological associates of the difference in assessments. METHODS: A prospective design was used, with repeated assessments of function, mood, and carer strain. Thirty hospital stroke patients and their main carer were interviewed 3 times: within 1 month of stroke, 1 month after discharge, and 6 months after discharge. RESULTS: There were significant differences between patient and carer assessments at all 3 time points, with patient self-assessment less disabled than carer assessment (at least P<0.02). The disagreement in assessment was unrelated to patient or carer mood (P>0.05) but greater disagreement was associated with greater carer strain (P<0.05). The source of the disagreement in functional ability assessment remains unclear. CONCLUSIONS: The method of assessment affects the rating of functional abilities after stroke. Carer strain is potentially increased when the patient or carer makes an unrealistic assessment of the patient's level of independence.  (+info)

I'm a nurse here but not a registered nurse in the US.I only do volunteer jobs because of lack of employment opportunities here in our country.I'm also graduate in caregiving. I am willing to work as a caregiver on US. Do they need adult caregiver or child caregiver?if you would like to contact me here is my e-mail mars3291@yahoo.com. It is difficult if you contact agencies here on Philippines. Direct hiring from employers is easier as on what I have heard.

"Caring for caregivers of patients with chronic illnesses." Can I get some tips?


  • I have a student and I have a project to do in which I must give a one hour presentation on the topic of "caring for caregivers of patients with chronic illnesses".. I am not good with presentations and I have NO idea what I can talk about for one hour! It'd be greatly appreciated if I can get some tips on topics I should cover and even personal stories! Thanks!
  • Caring for caregivers is becoming increasingly more important with the rise of illnesses such as Alzheimers. - relief for the caregiver, such as specific times when they can get away and do something for themselves--many spouses especially feel resentful that they are on duty 24/7 with very little respite. A schedule of relief people is essential. -- people with chronic illnesses are prone to depression, but so are caregivers. Caregivers need to acknowledge that this is possible and be willing to get therapy, take medicines and otherwise take care of themselves. -- a schedule is essential to maintain order in the household--other people can help to make sure basic things are done--cleaning, taking out trash, getting medicines and keeping track of doctor's appointments. It is difficult for one person to do all this. -- Caregivers need to laugh...gifts of comedy DVDs and inspirational literature will help the caregiver during the times when they can enjoy themselves.


how do i become a medical marijuana caregiver in so cal?


  • i need to know the legal steps to registering for a caregivers license for med marijuana in southern cali.We are starting a delivery service for legal medical patients,who cannot procure it for themselves.
  • Educate yourself. You should NOT be asking about this on yahoo answers. The Federal and State government as been closing medical marijuana collectives left and right for the past year and a half. FACT: a collective, especially a mobile one CANNOT be someones PRIMARY CAREGIVER. This is the easiest loophole to getting screwed by the state & federal police.

  • Eldercare source like http://www.ChoiceEldercare.org and many others help people to find caregivers. In case you need skilled person what would you do - contact your local agency or do Internet search and why?

What are good questions to ask a potential caregiver who will watch the children at her house one time only?


  • We will be meeting 2 people today and making a decision. My kids are 1yr and 5yrs old. What are some tips on interviewing these caregivers and making a good decision for my children? Thanks for any input.
  • How will they discipline your child if needed in your absence? Ask them to tell you what a typical day in their care would be like. Will she be having visitors over and who would they be? Where will your child be during the day (i.e. in the yard - is it fenced? in the living room, etc.) Also this goes without saying, please make sure they are a trustworthy person with references. Make sure they have a safe home for your children. Leave phone numbers in case of emergency, doctor, hospital info. What should she do in case of emergency? Discuss with her if she will be leaving with your children to go anywhere. Get a copy of her driver's license / make / model of the car. Leave an insurance card with her just in case your kids do have a medical emergency.


how do you improve communication between the caregivers and patients with low health literacy?


  • how do you improve communication between the caregivers and patients with low health literacy? patients with disabilites? children?
  • What do you mean by low health literacy?? Do you mean people who don't have much knowledge of health care?? And what about people with disabilites?? We usually know the health care system quite well as we use it a lot. As both a patient and as a parent I would say that the easiest way to improve health care between provider and patient it First don't make the mistake of assuming that we don't know what's going on or that we won't understand if you speak clear English and NOT medialess as I call it. Talk to us like we have some brains and not down to us. Assume that we want to know what's going on and talk to the patient not to the person with them unless the patient is developmentally delayed. Even than tell them as much as they will understand. Talk to children the same way after all it's their body that you're talking about. I was born with a rare blood disorder and was in and out of hospitals until the age of 13 and I hated it that the doctors talked to my parents but not to me when it was my body that they were talking about cutting into. Treat your patients as you would want to be treated as a patient and that alone would greatly improve communications between patient and provider.
