The effect of caregiving on the health of informal caregivers: presentation of findings
Presents the findings of a study that examines the effects of caregiving on the health and well-being of a small non-representative sample of urban women caregivers. Eleven informants participated in two interviews, the first interview exploring caregiving from their personal experience, the second seeking classification and elaboration. Analysis revealed that the domain of caregiving could be captured by three dominant themes: first, the experience of loss and grieving; secondly, adapting and coping to the new reality; and finally, the short and long term impact of caregiving. This study affirms the need to begin now to involve caregivers locally, regionally, and nationally in developing and implementing policy that will make a difference.
