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.
