AbstractOBJECTIVE: This study investigates the needs of caregivers in Shanghai, China, and their psychological well-being. METHOD: Using a multistage sampling strategy, a total of 716 dyads (i.e., older adults and their family caregivers) were interviewed in-person by trained interviewers. RESULTS: About 60% of the caregivers were female; more than 50% were 60 years and older; about 20% provided care for more than 10 hours per day; around 30% had provided care continuously for more than six years. About 20% of the caregivers showed depressive symptoms, which were associated with care receivers’ degree of dependency, and caregivers’ perceived burden, and coping avoidance. About 10% of caregivers were dissatisfied with life. Higher caregiver life satisfaction was associated with lower caregiving burden, greater social support, active coping and higher income. CONCLUSION: Providing support for the psychological well-being of Shanghai’s caregivers will be discussed in light of its implications for service provision and policy.
