The Person-Centered Planning Approach (PCP) currently used by health
and human services agencies places the mother and her adult child with
intellectual disabilities in the center circle of many concentric circles
of support. The mother is designated as the primary caregiver. Theory to
describe the mother's caregiving in the mother and child dyad is yet to be
developed. However, the concept of the caregiving in the mother and the
child dyad is widely used among families with disabled members regardless
of their association with the services agencies. The concept of caregiving
has unfortunately suffered confusion due to lack of clarity and precision.
Functional caregiving is proposed as a theoretical base to describe the
mother's caregiving behaviors for her disabled child. This article
presents the definition of functional caregiving, underlying theme, and
empirical evidences to support the construct of functional caregiving.
Functional caregiving provides an objective measure to assess mothers'
capacities to provide care for their children with disabilities. It
explicitly focuses on overt skills, tasks, and information that mothers
use in providing care. These measurement properties have potential to
become yardsticks to evaluate caregiver's ability to provide care.
Consequently, transitions of caregiving among different caregivers
including the mother may be facilitated. Discontinuities of care may be
minimized if transition of caregiving from the mother to another caregiver
becomes necessary. Thus, the concept of functional caregiving offers a
theory to describe the caregiving in the mother and child dyad of the PCP
approach. Key words: Functional Caregiving, Mental Retardation, Mother
