Family Caregiving: Family Resilience and Caregiving [We apply a modification of the Family Resilience Model to explain variation in how families adapt to caregiving for adult members. Caregiving is a family risk involving both the ongoing demands of providing care and specific stressors that increase the potential for negative outcomes. Family protection, vulnerability, and adaptation occur through family adaptive systems that develop and regulate day-to-day family interaction patterns. Family resilience in caregiving involves an interface with proximal ecosystems (e.g., local health and social services) within the distal ecosystems (e.g., culture, healthcare and social service systems; policies regulating approaches and resources available to support care). Throughout the chapter and in a case study, we show how families engaged in caregiving for a member with dementia can show positive adaptation in individual family members, family subsystems, overall family systems, and family-proximal ecosystem fit.] http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png

Abstract

[We apply a modification of the Family Resilience Model to explain variation in how families adapt to caregiving for adult members. Caregiving is a family risk involving both the ongoing demands of providing care and specific stressors that increase the potential for negative outcomes. Family protection, vulnerability, and adaptation occur through family adaptive systems that develop and regulate day-to-day family interaction patterns. Family resilience in caregiving involves an interface with proximal ecosystems (e.g., local health and social services) within the distal ecosystems (e.g., culture, healthcare and social service systems; policies regulating approaches and resources available to support care). Throughout the chapter and in a case study, we show how families engaged in caregiving for a member with dementia can show positive adaptation in individual family members, family subsystems, overall family systems, and family-proximal ecosystem fit.]
