ABSTRACT

Objective: To elucidate the mental health of caregivers following the loss of an elderly homecare recipient using a longitudinal method.
Methods: A baseline survey and a follow-up survey one year later were conducted on caregivers who had lost an elderly homecare recipient within the last one year and six months. Survey contents included subject characteristics (age, sex, relationship to care recipient, occupation, duration of care, and time since death), depression, grief, and sense of loss of caregiving role.
Results: Caregivers included 7 men and 56 women, with a mean age of 65.3±11.7 years and a mean duration of care of 75.8±77.8 months. Time since death was <1 year for 35 caregivers and =1 year for 28 caregivers. Caregivers who had lost an elderly care recipient <1 year ago had a depression score of 3.6±3.6 at baseline and 3.7±3.3 at follow-up, indicating no significant longitudinal change. However, among these caregivers, the grief score significantly decreased from 55.4±16.5 at baseline to 50.5±11.6 at follow-up, while the score for loss of caregiving role showed a tendency to decrease from 13.3±5.8 at baseline to 11.7±5.5 at follow-up. For caregivers who had lost an elderly care recipient =1 year ago, no significant changes between baseline and follow-up surveys were observed for depression score, grief score, and the score for loss of caregiving role.
Conclusion: The present findings suggest that grief and sense of loss of caregiving role among caregivers following loss of an elderly care recipient tend to decrease within one to two years, while depression may become chronic.
