The purpose of the study was to examine the relationships among elders' ADL dependence, family support, quality of elder-family caregiver relationship, spiritual well-being, coping, and care continuity on burden of family caregivers for elders with congestive heart failure (CHF). The theoretical framework for this study is based on the adaptation phase of Resiliency Model of Family Stress, Adjustment, and Adaptation. Subjects: Fifty elder-family caregiver dyads were recruited from medical and surgical units of two Midwest Medical Centers. The mean age of family caregivers was 60.3 years (SD = 14.4). The majority were female and white. The mean age of elders with CHF was 76.47 years (SD = 12.96) and 80% of them needed help to walk. Methods: A descriptive, correlational research design was used. Data on family caregiver burden, spiritual well-being, coping, quality of elder-caregiver relationship, and care continuity were collected using structured questionnaires. Information on elders' ADLs was obtained from family caregiver report. SPSS PC Version 15.0 was used to analyze the data. Results: There were significant positive relationships between elders' ADL dependence and family caregiver burden and between lack of family support and family caregiver burden. There were significant negative relationships between quality of relationship and family caregiver burden, between care continuity and family caregiver burden, between coping and family caregiver burden and between spiritual well-being and burden. The results of hierarchical multiple regression indicated that three variables in the model, patients' ADL dependence, quality of relationship, and lack of family support accounted for 66% of the variance in family caregiver burden. Conclusion: It is vital for nurses to assess family caregivers' needs and resources and the quality of the elder-family caregiver relationship in developing a plan of care that reduces family caregiver burden.
