Abstract

This review concerns the life quality of people caring for a relative witha severe disability within their family. It involves the balance between the advantages such care brings to the care recipient and the costs borne bythe family. A brief history indicates that the forces that encourage family care are minimally concerned with family welfare. Moreover, an analysis of both qualitative and quantitative data indicates that primary caregivers are at considerable risk of high stress, clinical depression, and abnormally low subjective quality of life. It is concluded that increased public expenditure directed to the care of people with severe disability is urgently required.
