Vivre aux côtés d’une personne aphasique chronique : quels impacts sur la qualité de vie ?

Abstract : The aim of this study is to evaluate the state of caregivers’ quality of life while taking care of a person with chronic aphasia, as well as to determine factors that might influence this. 30 caregivers of people with aphasia were included in this exploratory study. Caregiver burden and quality of life were respectively measured by the Zarit and the WHOQOL-BREF interview scales. These results were put in perspective with sociodemographic data concerning the aphasic patient and his caregiver. Results show low caregiver burden and a moderate quality of life. Thus, quality of life and burden scores show a correlation. Severity of aphasia, expressive of comprehensive impairment, speech therapy intensity and caregivers’ sex significantly influence their quality of life. In conclusion, this study provides an overview of the quality of life of caregivers of people with aphasia, and an outline of factors contributing to a better quality of life. This exploration is to be further investigated.
