Abstract
According to the 2013 Health and Wellness Survey, fifty three percent of caregivers suffer from depression compared to thirty two percent of non-caregivers. Caregivers are also at risk for co-morbidities demonstrating significant need for medical intervention in the early stages of caregiver stress. This study was designed to identify parental caregiver stress among patients with low-social economic status (SES) within Thundermist Health Centers in Rhode Island. Through literature search efforts, interventions to decrease parental caregiver stress were identified and recommended to Thundermist Health Centers.
