L'information des aidants naturels de malades dépendants à domicile : enquête de satisfaction sur l'information reçue et analyse des besoins

Abstract : Introduction: Family caregivers are essential to home care dependent patients. Several studies show that they need information. It is important to facilitate information access. The aim of our study was to evaluate the family caregivers' satisfaction about the information they received and to identify their needs. The secondary objective was to create a document for caregivers to help them in their information quest. Professionals could also use this document to improve communication. Methods: We performed a declarative survey with a self-administered questionnaire to 77 home family caregivers of dependent patients in Annecy area, all ages and pathology combined. They were recruited in outpatient consultations at hospital and community consultations. Results: Caregivers were 62.9% to be satisfied with the information received, 58.4% felt that having information could help them to better live their support. They were 45.5% to need information on possible aid, 40.3% on administrative procedures, 42.9% needed training in psychological support for their loved. The doctor (general practitioner or specialist) was the preferred informant to give information in consultation or home visit. Conclusion: Most caregivers are satisfied with the information received. They prefer information given by doctors, orally during a consultation or a home visit. With this observation, we made a written document that professionals can use to improve oral communication with caregivers. The aim of this document is to guide Annecy area caregivers to local structures according to their needs.
