Abstract

Because both the relative proportion of elderly and longevity in Western populations are steadily increasing, while health care resources remain limited, societal dependency on informal care will grow. The impact of providing informal care should be taken into account when designing research or policy regarding structure and provision of health care services. Currently, most studies monitoring the effect of providing care on the informal caregiver use instruments focusing on the burden of caregiving.
