Abstract

This predictive correlational research aimed to study factors influencing holistic health status among caregivers of patients with cerebrovascular disease. The samples were 256 caregivers of patients with cerebrovascular disease in Rangsit City Municipality, Thanyaburi District, Pathumthani Province. The research instruments were composed of the sociodemographic questionnaire, the health care potential questionnaire with reliability as .92, the burden of care questionnaire with reliability as .93, the barriers of care questionnaire with reliability as .86, and the holistic health status questionnaire with reliability as .94. Data were collected from June, 2018 to May, 2019. Statistics used for data analysis included frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, and stepwise multiple regression analysis.


The research results revealed that the total mean score of holistic health status among caregivers of patients with cerebrovascular disease was at a good level (M = 2.42, SD = .57). Burden of care, barriers of care, health care potential, family income, and age were statistically significant accounted for 48.30% of the variance of holistic health status among caregivers of patients with cerebrovascular disease (R2 = .483, p < .001).


This research suggests that nurses who interact with caregivers of patients with cerebrovascular disease should apply the research results for promoting holistic health status of caregivers by developing health care potential and reducing burden of care.
