Abstract

ABSTRACT: In 2015, there were 43.5 million informal, unpaid caregivers in the United States. Caregivers reported a moderate to high level of burden of care, including performing medical and nursing tasks they were not trained to do. A study of family caregiver experiences with parish/faith community nurses reveals four key ways parish nurses support caregivers and offers important implications for parish nurse preparation and practice.
