An integrative review on family caregivers' involvement in care of home-dwelling elderly

Often family members provide care-giving, which allows older adults to remain in their homes. With declining health and increasing frailty, care-giving of elderly people becomes a task of family caregivers (FC) in conjunction with home care nurses.
