Aim. This article is a report on a review of the effect of coping strategies on subjective burden in informal caregivers of older adults.
Background. Informal care has negative effects on caregivers’ health, and subjective burden is one of these. It has been linked with other effects (e.g. anxiety and depression). Thus, greater prevention of subjective burden will mean increased prevention of these effects. To achieve this, identification of factors related to subjective burden is essential.
