The aim of this study is to describe the impact of PSS on the caregiver’s burden, health and frailty. Methods. A longitudinal study of 876 dyads: old persons (over 70 years of age, non-dependent, living at home and applied for assistance to CARSAT-South East) and their caregiver which had been followed over 6 months after PSS implementation. Data has been collected by questionnaires. The burden was assessed with the Mini-Zarit scale, the frailty with the FiND self-questionnaire. Results: Most of old persons were women (77.6%), with a mean age of 82.2 ± 5.8 years. Most of caregivers were women (64.5%) averaging 62.7 ± 13.7 years. There were three categories of caregivers: spouses, children and others. Near 80% of old persons had a PSS. Most of the services proposed were for activities of daily living (such as housekeeping, meal preparation, outing, and shopping). After the implementation of the PAP, almost half of caregivers reduced the time spent on these activities, and the level of burden was reduced for 88% of them, perceived health improved for 13% and frailty for 17%.
