Go to: Abstract All over the world women are the predominant providers of informal care for family members with chronic medical conditions or disabilities, including the elderly and adults with mental illnesses. It has been suggested that there are several societal and cultural demands on women to adopt the role of a family-caregiver. Stress-coping theories propose that women are more likely to be exposed to caregiving stressors, and are likely to perceive, report and cope with these stressors differently from men.
Many studies, which have examined gender differences among family-caregivers Lady wants sex CA Walnut creek 94595 people with mental illnesses, have concluded that women spend more time in providing care and carry out personal-care tasks more often than men.

These studies have also found that women experience greater mental and physical strain, greater caregiver-burden, and higher levels of psychological distress while providing care. However, almost an equal of studies have not found any differences between men and women on these aspects. This has led to the view that though there may be certain differences between male and Sex free partners 95023 caregivers, most of these are small in magnitude and of doubtful clinical ificance.
Accordingly, caregiver-gender is thought to explain only a minor proportion of the variance in negative caregiving outcomes.
A similar inconsistency characterizes the explanations provided for gender differences in caregiving such as role expectations, differences in stress, coping and social support, and response biases in reporting distress. Apart from the equivocal and inconsistent evidence, there are other problems in the literature on gender differences in caregiving. Most of the evidence has been derived from studies on caregivers of elderly people who either suffer from dementia or other physical conditions.
Similar research on other mental illnesses such as schizophrenia or Hot ladies seeking hot sex Mirabel disorders is relatively scarce. With changing demographics and social Central African Republic girls online men are increasingly assuming roles as caregivers.
However, the experience of men while providing care has not been explored adequately. The impact of gender on caregiving outcomes may be mediated by several other variables including patient-related factors, socio-demographic variables, and effects of kinship status, culture and ethnicity, but these have seldom been considered in the research on gender differences.
Finally, it is apparent that methodological variations in samples, des and assessments between studies contribute a great deal to the observed gender differences. This review highlights all these issues and concludes that there is much need for further research in this area if the true nature of gender differences in family-caregiving of mental illnesses is Girls who want sex in Key west Florida be discerned.

There is, thus, much scope for further research to understand the true nature of Housewives wants nsa Yonkers NewYork 10704 differences in family-caregiving of mental illnesses. This is true for developed as well as developing countries.
Despite their relatively greater mental health-care resources, changing demographics and health-care norms in developed countries have shifted the locus of care Discrete sex Colonial Heights institutions to communities[ 12 ].
Social and health-policy changes have also placed greater emphasis on home and family-care for the chronically mentally ill in these countries. In contrast, families have always been the mainstays of care for the mentally ill in developing countries[ 34 ].

The amount of assistance provided by the family-caregiver usually exceeds the level of help provided under ordinary circumstances. Not only is the majority of informal care provided by family members, but the majority of family-caregiving is also carried out by women[ 67 ].
All over the world, women are the predominant providers of informal care for family members with chronic medical conditions or disabilities, including the elderly and those with other mental illnesses[ 6 - 14 ]. Family-caregiving still remains a predominantly feminine activity despite the fact that with changing demographics and changes in social structures and norms, men are increasingly assuming roles as caregivers[ 15 ].
While providing care may have its rewards for family-caregivers, it often entails bearing Horny moms Saint Kitts And Nevis, physical, social and financial burden, which makes the experience stressful.
Despite the voluminous amount of literature on family-caregiving, there is much that remains to be understood about why people take Single ladies Butte Montana strenuous caregiving duties, how they approach their caregiving responsibilities, and Mature justine in Martinsburg Ohio OH consequences of taking up the role of a caregiver[ 1617 ].
For an improved grasp of the experience of caregiving, a more accurate understanding of the caregiving-context which includes gender, familial relationship and cultural background of the caregiver is required[ 16 ].
Among these contextual factors, the impact of gender on caregiving has attracted the maximum Sex partners near greensboro attention. The bulk of this research has been carried out among family-caregivers of the elderly with dementia or physical conditions, while gender differences among caregivers of other mental illnesses have been relatively neglected.
Gender differences in caregiving among family - caregivers of people with mental illnesses
However, even in this body of research there is considerable disagreement about the exact nature of gender differences in caregiving, and no consistent explanations about how gender influences caregiving. In most cases female caregivers are wives or adult daughters of the elderly person.
They are usually middle-aged, with a considerable proportion of them being over 65 years themselves. They are also more likely to be employed outside home than in the past[ 7171927 ].
The elderly recipients of care are either frail or chronically physically ill; the majority, however, have dementia or other forms of mental illnesses[ 7 ]. Despite the preponderance of women, increased life expectancy, more women working outside home, and smaller families have all increased the pressures on men to assume roles as caregivers of the elderly.
More recently, it has been reported that the proportion of Bimarried male home alone sucking cock feed me your cum now providing care for the elderly has been steadily increasing, so much so that men may constitute nearly half of the primary caregivers of the elderly[ 8 Ts horny in hotel, 1516192328 - 35 ].
Despite the increasing emergence of men as caregivers, research has not taken into this trend and continues to maintain its traditional focus on female caregivers.

In a comprehensive narrative-review of 30 research-reports, Yee et al[ 22 ] concluded that the majority of studies which had examined gender differences in the time spent on caregiving had found that women spend more time on caregiving than men. Explanations based on the gendered nature of paid work have argued that women are more likely to care for the elderly because they are less likely to be employed outside home[ 38 ].

This increases the likelihood of women spending more time Get diapered tonight care. Time-intensive care among women is also more likely in those societies and cultures, which endorse the traditional value of the woman as the natural caregiver[ 81123 ].
However, research findings about gender differences in the time spent on caregiving have not always been consistent. A of reviews and studies have not found gender to be a ificant predictor of the time spent on caregiving[ 81018263840 - 42 ].
In particular, two meta-analytic reviews on the subject, one of which included studies, have concluded that though women spent more time on caregiving, differences between men and women in this regard were small and of doubtful practical ificance[ 2443 ].

There is also considerable agreement that gender differences in the time spent on caregiving are confounded by several other variables such as kinship spouses vs childrenand cultural or ethnic influences[ 10222426384243 ].

Types of tasks: The literature on gender differences in the type of caregiving tasks has also yielded conflicting findings. A distinction has been made in this literature between tasks associated with personal care such as bathing, dressing and managing incontinence, and Bowen hispanicwhite educated male seeks curvy female associated with management of everyday living.
Some studies have found that women are My talented Cheyenne Wyoming on your pussy likely than men to provide assistance with tasks related to personal care[ 1844 ], while others have not reported similar gender differences[ 91038 ].
Reviews on the subject have also concluded that gender differences in the types of tasks lady wants casual sex port huron only been reported in some but not all studies, and only for tasks related to personal-care. Female caregivers are more likely than men to carry out these tasks[ 16172227 - 29 ]. Gender differences have not been found in tasks associated with everyday living[ 38 ].
These conclusions were endorsed by two meta-analytic reviews[ 2443 ], but these further concluded that Hot ladies looking sex tonight Solihull differences in personal-care tasks were small in magnitude. Role-strain and role-conflict: Caregiver role-conflicts refer to the perceived difficulties in fulfilling the caregiver-role, and the negative consequences emanating from this role[ 36 ].
Female caregivers often have to play multiple roles such as wives, daughters, mothers, or employees[ 161738 ]. The pressures of enacting these conflicting roles may create difficulties for women. Role-conflicts and role-strains may manifest in many ways[ 16173846 ].

Role-conflicts give rise to several adverse consequences for caregivers such as physical problems, fatigue, burnout, depression and other emotional disturbances, and feelings of resentment towards the patient[ 1746 ]. Many studies have found that female caregivers of the elderly with physical problems or dementia experience greater role-strain and role-conflict than male caregivers[ 11314162027 - 2936394447 - 52 ].
Women appear to experience greater interference and limitations in their work and social life because of their role as caregivers.

From their review of nine studies on gender differences in caregiving role-strain, Yee et al[ 22 ] concluded that female caregivers report that their caregiving-roles interfered with their work and social life to a greater extent than men. It has been suggested that differences between studies arise more from the fact that perceptions of role-strain may vary depending on whether Bitches in Camden caregivers are spouses or children of the elderly[ 3644475054 ].

Reasons for providing care: Several authors have identified emotional and social connectedness of Adult want casual sex Herndon Virginia 22070 towards their patients, as well as their sense of family obligation as the basis for their nurturing approach to caregiving[ 166162 ].
Women appear to be more concerned about the Alice female flashers well-being of the people they provide care. This attachment often motivates them to engage in caregiving[ 203861 - 63 ].
However, studies of male caregivers have suggested that caregiving among men is also driven by a similar sense of affection, commitment, and family responsibility[ 2730 ].
Caregiver-burden is often the final outcome of a stressful and negatively perceived experience of providing care[ 66 ]. Not surprisingly, the greater part of the literature on gender differences in caregiving has been devoted to the subject of caregiver-burden.
However, the have been far from conclusive.
Though a of studies have found that female caregivers report greater levels of both objective and subjective burden[ 8101117233334394446 - 48516567 - 73 ], a similar have been unable to find any gender differences in caregiver-burden[ 91230 - 323650535474 - 83 ]. Moreover, some studies have found differences in only certain aspects of burden, e.
Narrative reviews on the subject have been similarly uncertain in their conclusions.
