Satisfaction with life is recognized to be a factor in alleviating burden in stressful caregiving duties. However, the mechanism underlying this relationship is indistinct. Positive aspects of caregiving (PAC) may help to regulate caregiving burden among caregivers of older adults. The study aims to examine whether positive caregiving characteristics mediate the effect between satisfaction with life and burden of care.
We extend existing research on the living arrangements of older Americans by focusing on geographic proximity to children, examining transitions in living arrangements across older ages, and describing differences by both race/ethnicity and educational attainment.
This study's aim was to investigate the influence of different caregiving types on cognitive functioning of caregivers aged 65 years and older longitudinally and to look at potential gender differences in this association.
Stroke is a significant health issue with devastating consequences among older adults in the United States. However, it can be prevented by improving stroke knowledge and managing risk factors. Many stroke education programs have been shown to be effective. Unfortunately, a minority of older adults, such as older Korean Americans, have not benefited from the programs because of language barriers.
Social isolation is a major risk factor for poor physical and mental health among older adults. This study investigates the correlates of objective social isolation among older African Americans, black Caribbean immigrants, and non-Hispanic whites.
Mexican Americans (MAs) are the largest, fastest growing Latino subgroup in the United States, yet their use of hospice is limited. To better understand this disparity, the authors conducted an integrative review focused on MA caregiving families' end-of-life (EOL) care decisions.
To determine the health literacy (HL) of older African Americans (AAs) and establish whether associations exist between HL and preventive health screening (PHS) behaviors, disease control (DC), and medication adherence (MA).
The objective of the current study was to assess socioeconomic and demographic disparities in caregiving intensity among informal caregivers. Using a randomized, nationally representative sample of 1,014 adult child informal caregivers from Medicare enrollment databases, the associations between informal caregiving intensity and age, race/ethnicity, and income were examined using binary and ordinal logistic regression. Caregiving intensity varied by demographics. Activities of daily living (ADL) caregiving ...
Personal network turnover, a combination of lost and added network contacts, is suggested to affect health as well as moderate access to social support and resources. This paper tests whether the caregiving process is associated with network turnover in later life and whether the process is different for men and women.
This study explores the intersection of marriage and caregiving amongst older spousal caregivers in regional Australia. Specifically, we address the research question: 'How do expectations of informal care impact spousal caregivers in later life?'
To examine the effect of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) levels recommended by Endocrine Society guidelines (>30 ng/mL) on cognition in healthy older African-American women over 3 years.
This qualitative secondary analysis explored the narratives of 14 nurses from various practice settings. Data analysis identified that although nurses share responsibility for spiritual caregiving for their patients, the ability to provide this care is greatly influenced by the extrinsic factors. Spiritual caregiving was seen as both a discrete act that facilitated patients' spiritual practices and, in other situations, took the form of integrative spiritual caregiving that was part of the interpersonal con...
Caregivers of the elderly with chronic illnesses are exposed to the burden associated with their caregiving activities. This study described the lived experience of caregivers of older adults in Nigeria.
Recent longitudinal studies have shown that informal caregiving increases depressive symptoms. However, little is known about the relation between informal caregiving and social ties as well as the evaluation of leisure-time activities longitudinally. Consequently, the aim of the current study was to investigate whether informal caregiving affects social ties as well as the perception of leisure-time activities.
The present study provides the first genetic locus associated with AD in African Americans.
African Americans with scleroderma have more severe disease and higher mortality than non-African Americans. Differences in rates of diffuse disease, autoantibody status, or socioeconomic status have not completely explained this phenomenon. Our study evaluates these risks at our site.
Older people with multi-morbidity are major users of healthcare and are often discharged from hospital with ongoing care needs. This care is frequently provided by informal caregivers and the time immediately after discharge is challenging for caregivers with new and/or additional tasks, resulting in anxiety and stress.
The number of men in professional caregiving roles has increased. While still a small percentage, the numbers of men in these roles continues to expand. Too often, the methods that professional male caregivers use to provide care differ from their female counterparts. There has not been much research conducted to understand how males in the professional role differ from their female counterparts in terms of caregiving characteristics.
Long-term care employees and employees with nonwork caregiving roles are at high risk for sleep problems and fatigue. Little is known, however, about relationships between sleep and fatigue among long-term care employees who occupy nonwork caregiving roles. This study examined whether longer sleep duration and better sleep quality reduce fatigue occurrence and severity within and between long-term care employees with nonwork caregiving roles, and investigated nonwork caregiving role occupancy as a moderator...
The nature and outcome of family caregiving is different for various racial and ethnic groups. The purpose of the current study was to use qualitative methods to examine and characterize family networks of African American family caregivers (N = 26) who provided care to family members with dementia (N = 18). Researchers used data generated from a parent study that addressed family involvement in health promotion activities for African American older adults with dementia. Data were analyzed using sociograms ...
Research in human caregiving shows burden is often present in the caregiver and can be reduced by interventions that increase positive perceptions of caregiving. Recent work suggests burden is also present in owners of a seriously ill companion animal. To help determine if findings from the human caregiving literature are likely to generalize to companion animal caregiving, we undertook a comparison of burden and positive aspects of caregiving in these groups. Caregivers recruited through social media dise...
To explore and describe older African Americans' patterns and perceptions of managing chronic osteoarthritis pain.
To jointly examine isolation, loneliness, and cynical hostility as risk factors for cognitive decline in older adults.
