The economic value of informal caregiving. (1/446)

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)

Alzheimer's disease in the United Kingdom: developing patient and carer support strategies to encourage care in the community. (2/446)

Alzheimer's disease is a growing challenge for care providers and purchasers. With the shift away from the provision of long term institutional care in most developed countries, there is a growing tendency for patients with Alzheimer's disease to be cared for at home. In the United Kingdom, this change of direction contrasts with the policies of the 1980s and 90s which focused more attention on controlling costs than on assessment of the needs of the patient and carer and patient management. In recent years, the resources available for management of Alzheimer's disease have focused on institutional care, coupled with drug treatment to control difficult behaviour as the disease progresses. For these reasons, the current system has led to crisis management rather than preventive support--that is, long term care for a few rather than assistance in the home before the crises occur and institutional care is needed. Despite recent innovations in the care of patients with Alzheimer's disease, the nature of the support that patients and carers receive is poorly defined and sometimes inadequate. As a result of the shift towards care in the community, the informal carer occupies an increasingly central role in the care of these patients and the issue of how the best quality of care may be defined and delivered is an issue which is now ripe for review. The objective of this paper is to redefine the type of support that patients and carers should receive so that the disease can be managed more effectively in the community. The needs of patients with Alzheimer's disease and their carers are many and this should be taken into account in defining the quality and structure of healthcare support. This paper shows how new initiatives, combined with recently available symptomatic drug treatment, can allow patients with Alzheimer's disease to be maintained at home for longer. This will have the dual impact of raising the quality of care for patients and improving the quality of life for their carers. Moreover, maintaining patients in a home environment will tend to limit public and private expenditure on institutional care due to a possible delay in the need for it.  (+info)

Do social factors affect where patients die: an analysis of 10 years of cancer deaths in England. (3/446)

BACKGROUND: This study investigated whether indices of social deprivation were related to the proportion of cancer patients who died at home. METHODS: Data were derived from death registrations for all cancer deaths 1985-1994 in England. Two indices of deprivation (Underprivileged Area Score (UPA), or Jarman, and Townsend scores) were calculated for each electoral ward; 1991 Census data were used. The scores use combinations of variables, including the percentage in overcrowded homes, the percentage of elderly people living alone, the percentage of one-parent families, etc. A high score indicates more deprivation. The main outcome measures were the proportion (in five and ten year averages) of cancer deaths which occurred at home, calculated for every electoral ward (with populations usually ranging from 5000 to 11,000). Spearman rho was used to test for correlations between the proportion of cancer deaths at home and deprivation score. Electoral wards were categorized by deprivation score into three groups of equal size and analysed over 10 years. Multivariate analysis was used to determine the relative association of different patient based and electoral ward variables with cancer death at home. p < 0.05 (two-tailed) was taken as significant. RESULTS: There were over 1.3 million death registrations from cancer in the 10 years. The proportion who died at home was 0.27, in hospital 0.47, and other setting 0.26. There were wide variations (0.05-0.75) in the proportion of people who died at home in different electoral wards. Small inverse correlations were found between the percentage who died at home and the UPA (-0.35; p < 0.001) and Townsend (-0.26; p < 0.001) scores. The correlations were greatest in North Thames (-0.63, UPA) and smallest in West Midlands (-0.20, UPA). The proportion of home deaths for the different bands of deprivation were: 0.30 (low deprivation), 0.27 (middle deprivation) and 0.24 (high deprivation). Plotting the trends over 10 years suggests no change in this relationship. Multiple regression analysis predicted several ward and patient characteristics and accounted for 30 per cent of the variation. Increased age (patient variable), Jarman score and ethnic minorities (both ward variables) were associated with fewer patients dying at home. Being male and having cancer of the digestive organs were associated with home death. CONCLUSION: There are wide variations in the percentage of cancer deaths at home in different electoral wards. Social factors are inversely correlated with home cancer death, and may explain part of this variation. Home care in deprived areas may be especially difficult to achieve.  (+info)

Children with cystic fibrosis benefit from massage therapy. (4/446)

OBJECTIVE: To measure the effects of parents giving massage therapy to their children with cystic fibrosis to reduce anxiety in parents and their children and to improve the children's mood and peak air flow readings. METHODS: Twenty children (5-12 years old) with cystic fibrosis and their parents were randomly assigned to a massage therapy or a reading control group. Parents in the treatment group were instructed and asked to conduct a 20-minute child massage every night at bedtime for one month. Parents in the reading control group were instructed to read for 20 minutes a night with their child for one month. On days 1 and 30, parents and children answered questions relating to present anxiety levels and children answered questions relating to mood, and their peak air flow was measured. RESULTS: Following the first and last massage session, children and parents reported reduced anxiety. Mood and peak air flow readings also improved for children in the massage therapy group. CONCLUSIONS: These findings suggest that parents may reduce anxiety levels by massaging their children with cystic fibrosis and their children may benefit from receiving massage by having less anxiety and improved mood, which in turn may facilitate breathing.  (+info)

Experiences of hospital care and treatment seeking for pain from sickle cell disease: qualitative study. (5/446)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate how sociocultural factors influence management of pain from sickle cell disease by comparing the experiences of those who usually manage their pain at home with those who are more frequently admitted to hospital for management of their pain. DESIGN: Qualitative analysis of semistructured individual interviews and focus group discussions. PARTICIPANTS: 57 participants with genotype SS or S/beta-thal (44 subjects) or SC (9) (4 were unknown). 40 participants took part in focus groups, six took part in both focus groups and interviews, and nine were interviewed only. Participants were allocated to focus groups according to number of hospital admissions for painful crisis management during the previous year, ethnic origin, and sex. RESULTS: The relation between patients with sickle cell disease and hospital services is one of several major non-clinical dimensions shaping experiences of pain management and behaviour for seeking health care. Experiences of hospital care show a range of interrelated themes, which are common to most participants across variables of sex, ethnicity, and hospital attended: mistrust of patients with sickle cell disease; stigmatisation; excessive control (including both over- and undertreatment of pain); and neglect. Individuals respond to the challenge of negotiating care with various strategies. Patients with sickle cell disease who are frequently admitted to hospital may try to develop long term relationships with their carers, may become passive or aggressive in their interactions with health professionals, or may regularly attend different hospitals. Those individuals who usually manage their pain at home express a strong sense of self responsibility for their management of pain and advocate self education, assertiveness, and resistance as strategies towards hospital services. CONCLUSIONS: The current organisation and delivery of management of pain for sickle cell crisis discourage self reliance and encourage hospital dependence. Models of care should recognise the chronic nature of sickle cell disorders and prioritise patients' involvement in their care.  (+info)

Where are the missing elders? The decline in nursing home use, 1985 and 1995. (6/446)

Findings from the 1995 National Nursing Home Survey suggest that elderly Americans are reducing their use of nursing home care. The numbers reflect a change in the role of the nursing home, as defined in this survey. By 1995 nursing facilities were increasingly focusing on patients with greater disability and postacute care needs. Preferred alternatives, most notably home-delivered care and assisted living, were likely filling the gap left by declining nursing home use. Better population-based studies are needed to track emerging trends and ascertain whether elders with disabilities are receiving the care they need. Such data could inform development of better public and private financing strategies for long-term care.  (+info)

Home case management of malaria: an ethnographic study of lay people's classification of drugs in Suneka division, Kenya. (7/446)

Lay people in malaria-affected regions frequently have to choose from many over-the-counter malaria management drugs, requiring them to be able to identify these medications and distinguish between them. Lay people make these distinctions at two levels - age of the patient and the whether he or she has fever, pain or malaria. Sometimes decisions are based on incorrect information given by friends and relatives, causing prolonged suffering to the patient, exacerbating chloroquine resistance and leading to resistance to the sulfodoxine/pyrymethamine drugs now recommended as first-line treatment in Kenya.  (+info)

Informal care is essential for many people with dementia (PwD), but it often results in a considerable burden for the caregiver. The perseverance time instrument integrates the aspect of perceived burden with the caregivers capacity to cope with the burden, in contrast to most available instruments, which measure solely the burden of caregiving. The aim of this study was to extend insight into psychometric properties of the perseverance time instrument, specifically the construct validity, responsiveness, and predictive validity, within the population of informal caregivers for PwD. Data from two studies among informal caregivers of community-dwelling PwD in the Netherlands were used. The first study included 198 caregivers from a single region in the Netherlands and lasted 1 year. The second was a cross-sectional nationwide study with 166 caregivers for PwD. Questionnaires of both studies included questions regarding demographics and informal care, perseverance time, and other informal caregiver
The study investigated the self-assessed mental and general health status of informal carers in Australia. It evaluated the influence of carers health behaviours, namely physical activity, smoking and drinking status, along with their social connectedness and workforce engagement on their health status. The study used a retrospective longitudinal design using data from the Household Income and Labour Dynamics of Australia survey, waves 5-15 (2005-2015). It included individuals aged 15 years and older from Australian households surveyed over a period of 11 years. The sample consisted of 23,251 individuals. The outcome measures included: mental health, general health and physical functioning domains of the Short Form 36 Questionnaire, a widely used multi-dimensional measure of health-related quality of life. Using fixed effects regression and following individuals over time, the analysis took care of the issue of individuals self-selecting themselves as carers due to some predisposing factors such as age
This chapter provides an overview of different models of financial support for informal carers (that is, the kin and close friends) of older people. These models reflect the institutional and cultural traditions of the broader societies and welfare states of which they are a part. The chapter first argues that the issue of paying informal carers needs to be understood from several different policy perspectives. It then outlines four models of providing financial support for informal care, illustrated with examples from specific countries. The different models are evaluated against a series of questions relating to sustainability; the implications for economic well-being and concepts of citizenship that derive from labour market participation; the balance between individual, family, and social rights and responsibilities; and the quality of care. Finally, the chapter argues that, in order to address these wider policy issues, a number of additional measures to paying informal carers of older people are
Men caregivers face caregiving burden, have weak support networks and are less likely to seek out programs which increase their caregiving capabilities and help them cope with this burden. Using the 2011 and 2015 National Study of Caregiving (NSOC) database and hierarchical regressions, we studied the emotional, financial, and physical burden of male caregivers as spouses, sons, and other caregivers by assessing the impact of caregiver characteristics, tasks and resources for each subgroup. We highlighted the importance of using a nationally representative database for men caregivers only and emphasized that these caregivers are not a monolithic group. We found that all caregivers experienced these three burden types, particularly elevated emotional stress, with sons reporting the highest emotional and financial strain levels. Assisting with personal care was the most stressful task and caregivers vastly under-utilized support and training. Our results suggest that burden suppressants included having
Results Prevalence of anxiety and depression was 31.2% and 15.6% in patients and 26.6% and 11% in carers respectively. In univariate analysis, patient and carer PM were significantly associated with each other (p = 0.005), with odds ratio 3.388 (95% CI: 1.414-8.118), and mainly disease-related variables and carer characteristics (including poor coping and unmet support needs), respectively. No demographic factors were significantly associated with patient PM but female gender was associated with carer PM. Table 1 shows the results of multivariate analysis. Finally, dyad PM was associated with male patients/female carers, living apart, parent-child relationship, and more exacerbations. ...

|p|The David and Lucile Packard Foundations Children, Families and Communities program is investing in exploratory projects to learn more about informal care settings. The overall goal of this work is to test strategies to provide information to family, friends, and neighbors (FFN), or informal caregivers, connect them with resources as well as each other, and support them in providing quality care for young children. Harder+Company Community Research, in partnership with the Center for Evaluation Innovation, conducted an evaluation of four informal care grants with an emphasis on learning from and with grantees, and using evaluation tools to support and strengthen the projects.|/p|
All transitions are challenging, so understanding the changes and preparing for them can make the difference between a smooth or a rocky course. Key conversations with family and neighbors about how you want future help should be as normal as talking about other life events like getting married, having children, or retiring. These talks need to begin when memory is failing, mobility is limited, or vision is impaired, but ideally they should happen well before that.. Caregiving may be provided by an informal network of family or neighbors, hired professionals, or both. Caregiving is hard work. Support, particularly for informal caregivers, is part of caring for the older adult. Often informal caregivers are also older, which poses concerns for the health and well-being of both caregiver and recipient.. People who take part in caregiving can turn to many resources for support. The CARE Act (Caregiver Advise, Record, Enable Act) has been passed in many states. This important legislation requires ...

This study describes patterns of caregiving experiences in partners of patients with cancer (N=148) over a 6-month period. Caregiving experiences were assessed by means of the Caregiver Reaction Assessment Scale (CRA), which consists of four negative dimensions and one positive subscale: Disrupted Schedule, Financial Problems, Lack of Family Support, Loss of Physical Strength, and Self-Esteem. Subgroup analyses were performed according to gender, age, and socioeconomic status (SES). Type, size, and direction of changes in caregiving experiences over time were analyzed both at a group level and at an individual level. Patterns of caregiver experiences appeared to vary between the subgroups; women, younger caregivers, and caregivers with a higher SES experienced caregiving more negatively or less positively. The findings illustrate the value of studying inter- and intraindividual patterns across different subgroups, and stress that caregiver experiences should be regarded as a multidimensional concept

Having tried ALL of the above, and getting desperate… I finally found D Mannose. I was looking for a treatment for my UTI that was natural, having taken antibiotics several times a year for a few years, they were no longer working and they made me feel really ill.. I figured I had nothing to lose so I thought Id try this produce because it is completely natural and also because I really needed to find an alternative to the horrible antibiotics that were damaging my body.. I ordered D Mannose while I was at work because they said immediate shipping. I started taking the treatment for UTI in the evening as the parcel had arrived by the time I got home. Luckily they have packages that fit through a letter slot and I didnt have to go and pick it up from the depot!. I did exactly what they said on their website and took a large amount to start with, with warm water (I was too scared to even try tea, in case it made it worse…). Within 20 minutes I started to feel better!!. It was literally the ...

As far as we are aware, this is the first literature review that has focussed on medicines management in people living in the community with dementia. Other reviews have included people living in care homes [14] and covered older people in general [8, 14]. Furthermore neither of these studies included the views of healthcare professionals or used an appraisal tool to assess the quality of the papers [8, 14]. Compared with these earlier reviews, there is limited data specifically focussed on medicines management in people living in the community with dementia. This current review also included the experiences of this population with healthcare professionals. People with dementia may lack the ability to understand and manage their medication. This increases the risk of non-adherence and results in informal carers taking on responsibility for medicines management as dementia progresses. This change in responsibility may affect the quality of life of the informal carer.. This review has identified ...
Nurturing, sensitive care in early childhood stimulates the developing brain and promotes optimal development, whereas disrupted parenting negatively impacts childrens development (Thompson & Nelson, 2001). Food insecurity, caregiver depression, and anemia increase a childs risk for negative developmental outcomes, with chronic experiences having the most negative long-term effects (Campbell & Cohn, 1995; Garmezy, Masten, & Tellegen, 1984; McCann & Ames, 2007; McLoyd, 1998b; NICHD, 2005; Rose-Jacobs, Black, Casey et al., 2008). The current study examined the roles that anemia and maternal depression play in the relation between food insecurity and developmental risk among a low-income, urban, African American sample of young children. This study was part of a larger cross-sectional study of parents with children under age three who seek treatment at pediatric emergency departments or primary care clinics. Participants were approached in waiting rooms and asked if they would like to participate ...
There is wide variation in reported impact of caring on caregiver well-being, and often a negative appraisal of caregiving. Researchers are beginning to question the robustness of the evidence base on which negative appraisals are based. The present study aimed to draw on data from a population-representative sample to describe the health, quality of life, and impact of caring of informal caregivers of people with an intellectual disability (ID). Informal carers of people with ID (N=260) were identified among 2,199 carers in the English Survey of Carers in Households 2009/10. Generalised estimating equations explored the association between socio-demographic and caring profile with quality of life, physical health status, and impact on psychological health and personal life. Compared to other caregivers, providing care to a person with ID was not associated with reduced quality of life. There was a 82% increased risk of reporting poorer health status, even though poorer health was not likely to ...
Aim The public mandatory long‐term care insurance system in Japan has supposedly mitigated the care burden for family caregivers of older adults, whereas family caregivers still play a considerable role in providing care. The effect of informal caregiving on the caregivers health has been of great interest. We investigated the relationship between the amplitude of informal caregiving and caregiver participation in health check‐ups in Japan. Methods The present study was a cross‐sectional analysis of nationally representative data in Japan (2010 Comprehensive Survey of Living Conditions). We investigated the relationship between care recipients care‐need level and in‐home caregiver participation in health check‐ups during the last year of the survey for caregivers. Results A total of 3354 caregiver/recipient pairs were included in the study. Crude proportions of caregivers completing a health check‐up by care‐need level were 68.4% (support required 1 and 2), 63.5% (care required ...
As dementia progresses, caregivers increasingly have to manage the decline of food-related abilities with little outside information or input from support services The provision of food coping skills and knowledge can lessen the burden on caregivers. However, there is little research on caregivers perspectives on food-related services. This paper reports on a qualitative study to investigate informal caregivers experiences of, and views on, food-related information and support services in dementia. Twenty informal caregivers were interviewed and the transcripts from these interviews were analysed using both deductive and inductive thematic analysis. Four categories emerged. Direct food-related Information, covers written material, training, Direct food-related informal support: lunch clubs, Indirect non-food related formal support services covers respite services and domestic help at home. Finally no services required covers those who did not feel they needed any form of intervention ...
Objectives: The capability to live well in people with dementia can be influenced by many factors, including those related to the experiences of their informal caregiver. How caregivers experience their own role can affect not only their well-being but also the way they provide care and hence the experience of the person with dementia. The aim of this study is to identify the potential impact of the caregivers perception of the caregiving experience on how people with mild to moderate dementia self-rate their QoL, well-being and satisfaction with life. Method: This study utilised time-point 1 data from 1283 informal caregiver and the 1283 people with dementia whom they provide care from the IDEAL cohort study. Multivariate modelling was used to investigate the associations between measures related to the caregivers perception of the caregiving experience (caregiving stress, perceived social restrictions, caregiving competence, positive aspects of caregiving, and coping) and the self-ratings ...
Home Treatment for acute psychiatric illness was compared to conventional hospitalisation in a design which focused on completed episodes of either exclusive alternative. The evaluation was conducted with the West Birmingham Home Treatment Team and All Saints Hospital, Birmingham. Forty cases in each group were examined with closely equivalent sociodemographic features and previous psychiatric history. The length of treatment, clinical outcome, identification and targeting of needs, readmission profile and client satisfaction were compared. The study focused on presentations involving mainly a diagnosis of severe mental illness. Home Treatment was significantly shorter and involved wider targeting of identified needs. There was no significant difference in terms of clinical outcome. Home Treatment and avoidance of admission were preferred by patients. The determinants of satisfaction with acute care in both settings was explored qualitatively. Significant design and sampling problems limit the ...

The INFOPARK project was undertaken to identify the information, health & social care needs of older people with Parkinsons disease in 7 European countries. This accompanying measure is intended to evaluate the applicability of those findings to reflect the needs of other older disabled people (i.e. those not suffering from Parkinson s disease) in European countries not involved in the original project and to determine the appropriateness of the 3 educational packages for older disabled people, their informal carers & health & social care professionals. This will be done through expert round table meetings, where expert refers to the disabled people and their informal carers. In addition collaboration with European user/patient organisations will promote the establishment of self-management/expert patient groups on a European basis. It explores new ways of establishing efficient and acceptable user /professional partnerships ...

Depression is one of those subjects we would rather not talk about. Even bringing up the topic seems to invite a dark cloud to hover over us. But contrary to what some people think, talking about depression does not make you more likely to experience it. In fact, a willingness to openly discuss the subject makes you less likely to fall prey to a gloomy mood.. That is exactly what Helen unexpectedly discovered at her most recent doctors appointment. Helen had never struggled with depression her entire life, that is, until she became a caregiver. For the past two years she has been caring for her husband who has early stage Alzheimers. About a year ago she noticed a persistent sadness and fatigue that she couldnt shake, even after a good nights rest.. Helen suspected that she might be depressed but wanted to downplay it during her doctors visit. But it didnt take long for the doctor to see the symptoms. He asked her to talk about her mood and it was then that she began to weep. She told of ...
In this paper we compare the results in an analysis of determinants of caregivers health derived from two approaches, a structural equation model and a log-linear model, using the same data set. The data were collected from a cross-sectional population-based sample of 468 families in Ontario, Canada who had a child with cerebral palsy (CP). The self-completed questionnaires and the home-based interviews used in this study included scales reflecting socio-economic status, child and caregiver characteristics, and the physical and psychological well-being of the caregivers. Both analytic models were used to evaluate the relationships between child behaviour, caregiving demands, coping factors, and the well-being of primary caregivers of children with CP. The results were compared, together with an assessment of the positive and negative aspects of each approach, including their practical and conceptual implications. No important differences were found in the substantive conclusions of the two analyses.
The role of family caregivers has dramatically expanded to include performing medical/nursing tasks once only provided in hospitals, says a new report by the AARP Public Policy Institute and the United Hospital Fund. The report is based on a nationally representative population-based online survey of 1,677 family caregivers to determine what medical/nursing tasks they perform. Almost half (46%) of caregivers performed medical/nursing tasks for family members with multiple chronic physical and cognitive conditions. Three out of 4 (78%) family caregivers who provided medical/nursing tasks were managing medications, including administering intravenous fluids and injections. Caregivers reported finding wound care very challenging; more than a third (38%) wanted more training. The report reveals the complexity and difficulty of specific tasks, the lack of support and training family caregivers receive, and the effect on their quality of life. It makes 10 recommendations, including:. ...

article{c39a9d5c-685c-43be-a77b-74fa23633169, abstract = {,p,Background: Different kinds of chronic diseases might imply different dimensions of caregiver burden, not previously described among the caregivers to recipients from the general elder population. Aim: The main objective was to examine differences in burden between the 343 caregivers to persons with different diagnoses. Methods: A group of elderly recipients of informal care (n = 343) from the general population study Good Aging in Skåne (GÅS) Sweden, were divided into five diagnostic groups: dementia (n = 90), heart and lung diseases (n = 48), stroke (n = 62), fractures (n = 66), depression (n = 40) and the group other, consisting of different diagnoses (n = 37) according to ICD-10. Differences in burden were analyzed using the Caregiver Burden Scale (CBS), a 22-item scale consisting of five dimensions: general strain, isolation, disappointment, emotional involvement and environmental burden. A total burden index comprises the ...
This weeks feature Who Cares for the Caregiver comes from Lise Tessier of the Ottawa Caregiver Support program, to mark next weeks Caregiver week. She writes: The growing population of older Canadians with greater life expectancy has increased the caregiving responsibilities of families, and decreased healthcare services, particularly at the community level, and have put an increased burden on the informal caregiver. The stress of caring for an elderly person in the home while juggling family and professional responsibilities can be intense ...
Respite means a short period of rest or relief. Respite care offers family caregivers support and a break from caregiving. It might be for a brief time each week to participate in a favorite activity or get tasks done, on occasion for a fun event, or for a longer period when going on vacation, traveling, recuperating, etc.. Getting respite care is anything but selfish. Instead, it helps you provide better care for your loved one, and keeps you and your relationships healthy. Studies show the dramatic benefits of respite:. ...

April marks the remembrance of significant events in my life. Some events were difficult and some were very exciting. It was in April of 2006 that my first husband, Wayne, went into the doctors office, and we received our first indication that something was wrong. This was followed by a four and a half year struggle with his ever increasingly disabling neurological disease. Yet it was in April of 2008 that I completed eight months of breast cancer treatment. What an exciting day! I remember dancing a little jig with a couple of my granddaughters that day. Seven years ago in April in 2014 also marks the publication of my book, Dear Caregiver Reflections for Family Caregivers. What an exciting day that was as well! Based on my experience as a family caregiver, I wrote my book to encourage current family caregivers. Family care-giving, while a noble calling, is also exhausting and sometimes discouraging. If you are a family caregiver, or you know a family caregiver, they may be blessed and ...
