Abstract

The demographic transition, resulting from the drastic decline in the levels of mortality and fertility rates and increased life expectancy, is closely related to the epidemiological dynamics. The growing number of chronic diseases evidences the need for care. The caregivers of the elderly in rural communities may be overloaded and to present impairments in physical and cognitive health. The objective of this research is to analyze the relationship between cognition, frailty and burden of caregivers of elderly in two rural districts in an inner city of Sao Paulo, Brazil. This is a cross-sectional, quantitative and descriptive correlational study. Will be interviewed approximately one hundred primary caregivers of elderly registered in two Unidades de Saude da Familia (USF) in the rural area of Sao Carlos. The Secretaria Municipal de Saude and the Comitr de Etica em Pesquisa em Seres Humanos of Universidade Federal de Sao Carlos (UFSCar) authorized and approved the present study. The data collection will be done at home caregivers, after previous schedule. Will be used for the data collection an instrument to characterize the caregiver; the Addenbrooke's Cognitive Examination - Revised to evaluate the cognitive domains; the criteria for evaluation of frailty phenotype proposed by Fried et al (2001) and the Zarit Burden Interview to evaluate the caregiver burden. The data will be described and analyzed by descriptive statistics, reliability test, data normality test and correlation, difference and regression tests among variables. It is hoped that the results will contribute to the understanding of the reality of care and aging in rural areas.
