Tuğba Atak [1] , Mustafa Özekes [2]


This study was carried out to determine the relationship between caregiver burden, coping levels, self-efficacy and psychological resilience of family caregivers of persons with dementia. The research was carried out on 134 family caregivers of persons with dementia who received health care from university hospitals in Izmir and members of İzmir Branch of Alzheimer Solidarity Association. In the study, family caregivers of dementia patients’ caregiver burden, ways of coping with stress, self efficacy and psychological resilience were measured by Caregiver Burden Inventory, Ways of Coping Inventory, Generalized Perceived Self Efficacy Scale, and Resilience Scale for Adults respectively. Relevant demographic information about caregivers and patients was collected by using Demographic Information Form which was developed by the researchers. According to the results of correlational analysis, the relationship of caregiver burden with coping skills and resilience and the relationship of self efficacy with time dependence burden and social burden were found statistically significant. The multiple regression analysis indicated that the Caregiver Burden Inventory Sub Scales was estimated by at least one of the independent variables. It is recommended that these factors are considered in support programs developed for caregiving family members.

Bu araştırma demans hastası bireylere bakım veren aile üyelerinin stresle başa çıkma düzeylerinin, özyeterliklerinin ve psikolojik dayanıklılıklarının bakım veren yükü ile gösterdikleri ilişkiyi ortaya koymak amacıyla yapılmıştır. Araştırma İzmir ilinde sağlık hizmeti veren üniversite hastanelerinde tedavi gören demans hastalarının yakınları ve Alzheimer Derneği üyesi olan hasta yakınlarından oluşan 134 kişi üzerinden yürütülmüştür. Araştırmada demans hastasına bakım veren aile üyelerinin bakım veren yükleri Bakım Veren Yükü Envanteri, stresle başa çıkma tarzları Stresle Başa Çıkma Tarzları Ölçeği, psikolojik dayanıklılıkları Yetişkinler için Psikolojik Dayanıklılık Ölçeği, özyeterlikleri ise Genelleştirilmiş Algılanan Özyeterlik Ölçeği ile belirlenmiştir. Bakım veren ve hasta arası yakınlığın düzeyi ve bakım verene yönelik demografik bilgiler araştırmacılar tarafından geliştirilen Kişisel Bilgi Formu ile elde edilmiştir. Korelasyon analizi sonuçlarına göre baş etme becerisi ve psikolojik dayanıklılığın bakım veren yükü ile negatif ilişkisi olduğu, öz yeterliliğin stresle baş etme ve psikolojik dayanıklılık ile pozitif ilişkisi istatistiksel olarak anlamlı bulunmuştur. Çoklu regresyon analiz sonuçlarına göre Bakım Veren Yükü ölçeğinin alt boyutlarının değişkenlerden en az biri tarafından yordandığı bulunmuştur. Bakım veren aile üyelerine yönelik geliştirilecek psikolojik destek programlarında bu faktörlerin göz önüne alınması önerilmektedir.
