The Burnout Risk for Male Caregivers in Providing Care to Spouses Afflicted with Alzheimer's Disease
Author: LARRY HUBBELL and KELLY HUBBELL
Published in JHHSA, Vol. 25 No. 1
In a review of the Alzheimer’s and burnout literature, it seems apparent
that Alzheimer’s caregivers, especially male caregivers, are particularly
subject to burnout. Male caregivers are seemingly more likely to
experience the typical symptoms of burnout, namely: depersonali-
zation, diminished personal accomplishment, and emotional exhaus-
tion. Unfortunately, male caregivers also seem less inclined to seek out
community services. In addition to reviewing the literature, this article
also proposes some research questions for further study.
