Objective: The purpose of this study was to assess the caregiving demands of patients with Parkinson’s, self-efficacy, and stress on family caregivers. Design: A descriptive design was used. The Lazarus and Folkman’s stress, appraisal, and coping theory was used to guide this study. Population, Sample, Setting, Years: A convenience sample of 90 caregivers was obtained from neurology clinics of three tertiary care hospitals in Bangkok, Thailand, from February to April 1999. The inclusion criteria were caregivers who: a) lived with and provided the majority of daily care to patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD); b) were aged 15 years and over; and c) if the caregiver’s age was 60 and over, their cognitive status was established by a Set test score of 25 and over. Concept or Variables Studied Together or Intervention and Outcome Variables: Caregiving demands, self-efficacy, and stress were the variables of the study. Methods: The eligible subjects were interviewed concerning the prevalence of patients’ demands for help with activities of daily living and behavioral problems in the home setting, the subjective stressfulness of each activity and problem, and caregivers’ perceived self-efficacy in managing the problem. Findings: Results indicated that the caregivers reported the caregiving demands of PD patients were low, indicating mild dependence. The caregiver perceived lower self-efficacy related to the performance of care for behavior problems than in regard to helping patients with activities of daily living. The caregiver perceived higher stress related to the performance of care for behavior problems than for the care associated with activities of daily living. Implications: The results of this study can be used as baseline information in clinical practice for assessing patients and their caregivers. Further intervention research should be conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of a planned intervention to enhance caregivers’ self-efficacy and ability to manage caregivers’ stress.
