Effect of Employment Status on the Association Among Sleep, Care Burden, and Negative Affect in Family Caregivers

Objective: To examine the effect of employment status on sleep, care burden, and negative affect among family caregivers (FCs) at home. Methods: An intensive longitudinal design was applied in which 25 FCs underwent in-home assessments for up to 56 days. At baseline, demographic data and employment status were collected. FCs wore a wrist-worn device with an accelerometer to assess objective total sleep time (TST) for consecutive 24-hour periods.
