An Exploratory Study of Caregiver Stress, Fatigue & Worry in the United States

Published: January 15, 2015
Authors: Dana Ellis, Ari Houser, & Joseph F. Coughlin


As the population ages, family caregiving is getting increased attention from business, government, and communities. Understanding its dimensions and potential costs is critical to informing innovations that may benefit caregivers as well as care recipients. This exploratory study looks at the relationship between caregiving and well-being. The analysis finds that caregivers, particularly women, were more likely to experience stress and worry than non-caregivers, and less likely to feel as if they had enough time and were well-rested. The paper presents findings and issues for future research.
