Abstract

A Scoping Review was conducted to explore key issues that underpin the experiences of family caregivers of older adults with chronic illness. The review aims to identify the gap in literature and synthesise evidence on this topic. Globally, family caregivers of older adults with chronic illness experience burden. Evidence suggests that family caregivers’ needs are poorly understood and remain largely under recognised by healthcare services. Moreover, little is known about the experience of family caregivers caring for older adults with multiple chronic conditions. Data bases used included: Academic Search Elite, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL), Science Direct, SCOPUS, MEDLINE, and grey literature. 3352 records were identified, 58 full-text articles were assessed for eligibility, and 11 papers included in the literature review. Data are narratively synthesized. This review provides findings that suggest further research.
