|Title:||Psychological distress in Brazilian caregivers of relatives with dementia|
|Abstract:||The authors evaluated stress, anxiety, depression, and feelings of hopelessness in caregivers of relatives with dementia. One hundred and twenty-nine caregivers and 145 non-caregivers who lived in metropolitan Porto Alegre, Brazil completed Lipp's Inventory of Stress Symptoms for Adults, (ISSL), and Beck's Anxiety (BAI), Depression (BDI), and Hopelessness (BHS) scales. Caregivers showed higher levels of anxiety, depression, hopelessness, resistance/pre-exhaustion stress than controls. This study indicates that constant caregiving may significantly increase the risk of physical and mental health problems for caregivers in Brazil.|
