Abstract:
Palliative care is well known for its service for the terminally ill or bedridden elderly/ patients. Since patients/elderly and their family together constitute the unit of care it is essential to realize the significance of family caregivers in executing the process of care. This study intends to identify the perceptions of the care receivers on the stress of their family caregivers and the impact of the same on their own total wellbeing. The study reveals that the care receivers are very much concerned about the strain and stress of their care givers in connection with the process of caring them.
