Abstract

Whereas a growing commitment to incorporating caregiver attitudes, beliefs, and perceptions into research and practice related to service use has emerged, less attention has been paid to the link between these subjective caregiver characteristics and the caregiving experience more gent rally. In a sample of 120 family caregivers of persons with Alzheimer's disease, we found that independent of actual receipt of help and caregiver perceptions about their own health and that of the care recipient, normative beliefs aboutreceiving hell, were significantly related to caregiver mental and physical burden, role captivity and overload practitioners may be able to improve the caregiving experience by taking caregivers' normative beliefs into account throughout the caregiving trajectory and by helping individuals and families modify maladaptive beliefs.
