Informal Caregiving:

Contrast the positive and negative aspects of care giving from the caregiver’s perspective and discuss the issues that tip the balance for any given individual.

Most caregivers report substantial positive aspects, and little to no negative aspects. Some report that caregiving brought them closer to the care-recipient, and a good amount report caregiving provides satisfaction that the recipient is well cared for. Only a small number of caregivers report substantial negative aspects of caregiving, the most common being having more to do than they can handle, feeling exhausted, and not having time for themselves. Most caregivers also reported no difficulty with caregiving and reported substantial financial or physical difficulties. Some have reported emotional difficulty as a result of their caregiving. Patterns were similar for caregivers helping with self-care or mobility, although they appear to be slightly less likely to report few gains and more likely to report substantial negative aspects of caregiving and difficulties with caregiving. The apparent differences are not statistically significant, however, although self-care and mobility helpers were significantly less likely to report no financial, emotional, or physical difficulties.

2. Continuum of Care:

Long-term care providers may be considered in a continuum of care. Summarize this concept and include the three elements of a continuum discussed in Chapter 1 in the Pratt text.

Continuum of care is a client-oriented system composed of both services and integrating mechanisms that guides and tracks patients over time through a comprehensive array of health, mental health and social services spanning all levels of intensity of care. There must be a continuing health need that is being monitored, of course, but the transition of care levels from basic early intervention to skilled nursing care and all intermediate interventions comprises continuum of care. The term might include a substance abuse organization, a physical rehabilitation hospital or other facilities including nursing homes and assisted living. About long-term care, you might consider senior housing communities. Usually, there are four levels of care in these communities:  independent living, assisted living, nursing home and skilled nursing.

The elements of a continuum are:

 The Continuum is Client Oriented

 The Continuum is Comprehensive

 The Continuum is Integrated
