Family caregivers who receive a high level of care from a family doctor found to have lower stress levels

People caring for family members at home (family caregivers) face more substantial psychological and physical challenges than non-caregivers. Therefore, health care professionals should pay attention to the stress of family caregivers. Although it has been reported that most family caregivers favor psychological support for their caregiving responsibilities from their family doctor, no studies have examined whether the primary care functions of that physician can affect the stress related to caregiving.
