Description

Predictors of Caregiver Distress in the Community Setting Using the Home Care Version of the Resident Assessment Instrument According to the findings of numerous research studies, informal caregivers provide up to 90% of home care needs. Without support, the caregivers themselves are at increased risk for stress, declining health and possible hospital admission. The authors' goals were to identify predictors of the onset of caregiver distress among caregivers not currently experiencing distress, and identify predictors of decreased caregiver distress among caregivers currently experiencing distress.
