Validation and Reliability of the 12-item Zarit Burden Interview among Informal Caregivers of Elderly Persons in Nigeria

Research on ageing in Nigeria has shown that informal care places economic and psychological strain on the caregivers of the elderly persons. However, objective method of assessment of the burden of care for the elderly among caregivers is lacking. This study was aimed at validating the 12-item Zarit Burden Interview (ZBI) among caregivers of elderly persons in Nigeria in correlation with the Katz Index of Independence in Activities of Daily Living (Katz-ADL), the General Health Questionnaire (GHQ-12) and the Modified Conflicts Tactics Scale for Elder Abuse (MCTS).
