Caring for a family member can bring a gamut of emotional and physical strains that affect the health of the caregiver and the quality of care they are able to provide. The Modified Caregiver Strain Index (CSI) is an assessment tool designed to both measure the stress of caregiving, and to highlight areas that the family caregiver should address. It explores the 4 Domains of Caregiving-- physical, psychological, financial, and personal, and provides a framework in which care professionals can help family caregivers to acknowledge and address these specific areas.
