Özet

Purpose The present study was conducted to determine the effects of the caregiver burden perceived by caregivers of patients with neurological disorders on caregiver wellbeing and stress. Design and Methods The study was designed as a descriptive, cross-sectional, and correlational study. Findings In the study, it was determined that the care burden is related to a caregiver's wellbeing and stress level and that the caregivers' levels of performing activities of living decreased and their stress levels increased as their perceived burden of care increased. Implications for Practice Determining caregivers' difficulties in providing care and providing them with professional support will contribute to reducing the burden of care.
