Abstract:
This study examined negative reception to caregiving by a chronically ill spouse and the impact on the caregiving and the caregiver spouse. Quantitative and qualitative methodology were used. Audiotaped interviews using the Caregiver Impact Inventory (CII) (Miller, 1993) provided data on caregivers' perceptions of negative reception to caregiving by a chronically ill spouse. Perceptions of Caregiving (Oberst, 1991), Caregiver Burden Scale (Oberst, 1991), Caregiver Strain Index (Robinson, 1983), and Rosenberg Self-Esteem (Rosenberg, 1965), were implemented. Eight respondents indicated (CII) that negative reception to caregiving by a chronically ill spouse had a significant impact on the thoughts and feelings, and self-esteem of the caregiver. Caregiver spouses responded by reserving or withholding caregiving responses. The caregiver spouses indicated that moderate levels of threat, general stress and benefit (POC), moderate levels of burden (CBS), moderate levels of strain (CSI) and low-moderate self-esteem were experienced.
