The Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI) conducted a study which found that many family caregivers experience high levels of distress when providing care to those with long-term health conditions or difficulties associated with aging.
CPSI aimed to address caregivers’ need for support in their Resource Guide for Supporting Caregivers at Home – For Clients and Family Caregivers (2014). Without meeting caregiver needs, individuals who need their care are at higher risk of admission into acute or long-term care facilities.
