FERNANDEZ GARCIA, Álvaro Miguel; SAMANIEGO RUIZ, María Jesús  and  CAMBIL MARTIN, Jacobo. Atención a una cuidadora mediante procesos asistenciales integrados. Rev Eug Esp [online]. 2017, vol.11, n.1, pp.48-56. ISSN 2661-6742.

The population is aging in recent years, and with this the number of dependents is too. It is unthinkable to talk about dependence without talking about the informal caregiver. Therefore, the caregivers have been included in the integrated healthcare processes in order to achieve continuity in care. So, the clinical case of a 47 year old woman who takes care of her mother in law is presented. She was diagnosed with tiredness of the caregiver’s role and stress due to overload after attending the nursing consultation and carrying out a comprehensive assessment. Different interventions of giving emotional support, health education and facilitating resources were performed. The results were satisfactory, concluding that the detection of tiredness of the role of caregiver is crucial because of the impact it has on the dependent person and the caregiver.
