Family caregivers of persons with chronic aging-related diseases experience multiple stress factors related to their caregiving.
The long-term goal of EPA is to identify successful institutional support services (e.g., self-help groups, non-profit services, commercial providers, or online social helplines and networks) for family caregivers of persons with dementia and chronic heart failure. Success is defined in terms of sustainability and a positive influence on family caregivers’ psychological well-being, health, and biological stress markers.
