Abstract


Informal caregiving has become a widespread phenomenon, with family members and friends providing care for patients who have chronic or terminal illnesses and prefer to remain in their homes. The physical and emotional impacts of this unpaid work upon the caregiver can range from minor to severe. This study sought to identify qualities about the caregiving situation that may relate to the presentation of physical and/or emotional symptoms in the caregiver.
