Next-of-kin caregivers in palliative home care - from control to loss of control

Aim.  This paper is a report of a study to describe situations influencing next-of-kin caregivers’ ability to manage palliative care in the home.

Background.  Palliative home care often involves major resources from next-of-kin, municipal and county personnel. Next-of-kin caregivers’ situation is depicted as so demanding and exhausting that it can affect their mental health and limit their ability to continue as a caregiver.
