ROGERO-GARCIA, Jesús. Consequences of family care over caregiver: A complex and necessary assessment. Index Enferm [online]. 2010, vol.19, n.1, pp.47-50. ISSN 1132-1296.
Care provided by relatives or friends to dependent people is a key process to promote wellbeing in Spanish society. This type of support has intense consequences over caregivers' lives. Comprehensive and multidisciplinary analyses are required to assess dependency effects over social network. In this paper we elaborate a classification of types of family care consequences over caregivers. We differentiate between positive or negative consequences, and between consequences affecting caregivers' health, economy and/or social relations.
