Abstract

Caregiving for elder family members is a growing national phenomenon. As such, new stressors for family members are being identified. This paper reports the perceptions of caregivers of elder adults about their caregiving role. Caregivers reported being worried, worn-out and angry. Furthermore, caregivers reported that their needs are not being met. The authors suggest strategies to provide relief for caregivers and for intervening with caregiving dyads.
