Abstracts

 

The study used to measure resilience of the caregivers attending to Alzheimer’s patients. Twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad were selected and total 60 caregivers were selected purposively for conducting the present study. Multidimensional scale of perceived social support scale which was developed by Zimet, Dahlem & Farley (1988) was used to measure perceived social support of caregiver and resilience was measured by using Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC) which was developed by Kathryn M. Connor and Jonathan R.T. Davidson (2003). Results showed that there was no significant impact of caregiver’s demographic profile except a relationship with the patient. And patient demographic profile had no significant impact on the resilience of the caregiver. Multidimensional perceived social support had no significant impact on resilience of the caregiver. Hence it can be concluded that resilience is an individual characteristic.

 

Keywords :
