Approximately 30 million people in the United States are over the age of 65. Eighty to eighty-five percent of the group have one or more physical or mental problems. Much of the care for this population is done by family members at home. There is concern about the quality of this care since measurement of quality of family care is usually not done except in cases of obvious abuse. Review of the literature produces no instruments to measure this quality. This study is designed to develop, refine, and validate an instrument to measure the quality of care being given by family caregivers in the home. Expert nurses in the field of home health care were used to do consensual validation of the instrument after initial development. Currently, testing with 125 patient/family dyads from a variety of referral sources is being done with the instrument to determine validity and reliability. Statistical analysis of the instrument will include item internal validity analysis and factor analysis for construct validity. The instrument can then be used to identify families at risk and to identify the magnitude of the quality problem to promote development of appropriate resources to support family caregivers.
