The Mental Health Effects of Informal Caregiving : Emerging Research and Opportunities Hardback
Because progressive advancements to healthcare practices are leading to longer lifespans, an increased number of aging individuals now require constant care from practiced caregivers.
The financial costs of in-home care can be quite high; therefore, many families are opting to stand in as caregivers, and this can lead to various impacts on their own social and psychological wellbeing. The Mental Health Effects of Informal Caregiving: Emerging Research and Opportunities provides autobiographical accounts and statistical data associated with the caregiving experience, as well as the methods to discern the positive psychological forces that shape the subjective wellbeing of informal caregivers.
Highlighting topics such as institutional vs. informal caregiving, special healthcare needs, and veteran care, this book is ideally designed for psychologists, therapists, researchers, medical institutions, academia, and students seeking current research on the subjective wellbeing of informal caregivers.
