Not about the physical activities of care

Our years of longitudinal, focused studies on caregivers show certain psycho-social measures independent of ADLS or IADLS accurately predict likelihood of caregiver burnout.

Burden Measures

It’s the change of identity from loving relative to full-time caregiver

What correlates most to burnout is “identity discrepancy” — the first time a family caregiver sees themselves as caregiver first, family member second.

Am I her daughter or caregiver?

Individualized and in-depth data gathering approach within a conversation

Acknowledging the needs of the family caregiver first. Identifying the right resources at the right time, second.
