Family caregivers play a crucial role in providing daily assistance to individuals who are unable to care for themselves. Being a family caregiver can create family caregiver burden, which is discussed in the first chapter of this book. It provides a systematic review of the interventions available for family caregivers. Chapter two and three focus on quality of life and caregiver burden among caregivers of chronic liver disease patients, and epileptic patients.

Chapter four examines parents’ perceptions of caring for children with learning disabilities, and their psychosocial well-being. Chapter five aims to improve the understanding on disclosure trends, impacts, and factors that may inhibit or motivate children to disclose sexual abuse experiences to their caregivers. Chapter six explores the author’s experiences with caregivers of children in HIV-affected Southern African communities. The final chapter studies the accuracy of health information resources on the internet that many caregivers rely on.
