  1. Caring for the chronically ill, handicapped and disabled : a study of informal caregiving in Alabama.

    Article - En anglais

    Informal caregivers provide most of the care and assistance required by those in our society who are handicapped or disabled.

    For the most part, caregiver is a role played by a largely invisible army of individuals whose often unrecognized efforts are vitally important to the millions of care recipients who depend on the care and assistance they receive.

    This article reports the results of a survey of 451 adult residents of the state of Alabama that examined the respondents'attitudes about informal caregiving and the nature and the extent of their caregiving activities.

    Twenty-seven percent of respondents reported providing care to a handicapped, a disabled, or chronically ill family member ; 64% of the caregivers were women.

    There were no significant differences between caregivers and non-caregivers on demographic variables.

    Caregivers were more likely than non-caregivers to believe that the family should bear primary responsibility for caregiving ; 78% of caregivers reported that they did not need any additional help or assistance with caregiving, although data was not available regarding the assistance they are currently receiving.
