MAYOR, Margarida Sotto  e  LEITE, Manuela. Implicações Psicológicas da Experiência Informal de Cuidar. Revista Portuguesa de Enfermagem de Saúde Mental [online]. 2011, n.5, pp.37-44. ISSN 1647-2160.

The study of informal care for people with dementia and their dependents has been gradually gaining importance as an object of study for the Portuguese scientific community. With the rapidly aging population is expected that the increase in cases of dementia will double within the next 20 years. Currently with no known cure, this progressive disease requires a rehabilitative approach that emphasizes the maintenance of existing capabilities and that can be guided through several major areas. The authors, with extensive experience of a multidisciplinary approach to this problem, having selected the time period between 2002 and 2011 of publications on "dementia caregiving," present a systematic approach to analysing the content review of several articles. The overall results indicate a performance focused on the rehabilitation of elderly-caregiver dyad promoting improvements in the communication of the dyad, thus reducing the psychological implications associated with the activity of informal care.

Palavras-chave : Caregivers; dementia; psychological implications; anxiety; depression; coping.
