Study of 130,000 seniors (age 65 and older) who received publicly funded long-term home care in 2007–2008 including many with complex health conditions. Found that one in six people providing informal care to seniors experiences distress, and those caring for seniors with moderate to severe cognitive impairment, such as those with Alzheimer`s or other dementia, are most at risk.
