Use of formal community resources by spouse caregivers of chronically ill adults.
This descriptive correlational study examined the use of formal community resources of spouse caregivers of progressively chronically ill individuals.
The convenience sample was 61 individuals with a definitive diagnosis of multiple sclerosis and their spouse caregivers.
Results indicated that 34.4% of the sample used community resources.
Relationships among caregiver demographics, extent of caregiving tasks, subjective burden, perceived uncertainty of the caregiver, functional incapacity of the chronically ill individual, level of social support, and the use of formal community resources were analyzed.
