Cultural and noncultural factors as determinants of caregiver burden for the impaired elderly in South Korea

H Choi
Department of Social Welfare, Jeonju University, South Korea.

This study investigated the determining variables of caregiver burden in caring for impaired older relatives in South Korea. Economic factors, daily caregiving hours, and caregiver's health status emerged as the most important determinants of caregiver burden in Korea. Though not a powerful predictor, caregivers' congruency with the traditional caregiver selection norms remained a statistically significant predictor of certain dimensions of caregiver burden.
