Abstract

Introduction: This article affirms that measuring the Caregiver’s emotional experience and engagement, especially as the condition of the person assisted changes, is useful for assessing the sustainability of the care plan.

Methods: With this pilot study, aimed at detecting the level of Caregiver engagement, by using the Caregiving Engagement Scale (CHE-S®), for people suffering from chronic and/or fragile pathologies, it was decided to verify the relationship between engagement levels and other variables such as: socio-demographic characteristics of the Caregiver; duration and frequency person; clinical characteristics of the assisted person.

Results and Conclusions: In the future, the results of this research will allow to define new working practices to support those who take on the responsibility and burden of caring for a sick, fragile, disabled family member.
