Due to the stress associated with caring for a family member with a chronic disease, caregivers are at risk of developing physical and mental health problems which include the following:


  • Poor physical health
  • Poor quality of life
  • Emotional distress
  • Depression and anxiety


In addition to managing the challenges of caring for a person with a chronic disease such as dementia, caregivers need to attend to their health needs so as to prevent the onset of disease and increase overall quality of life. Research shows that optimal health outcomes for adults throughout the life course are dependent on the maintenance of healthy lifestyle behaviors - physical activity and diet.
