RIBEIRO, Daniele Favaro; MARQUES, Sueli; KUSUMOTA, Luciana  e  RIBEIRO, Rita de Cássia Helu Mendonça. Home care for the elderly undergoing Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis. Acta paul. enferm. [online]. 2009, vol.22, n.6, pp.761-766. ISSN 1982-0194.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-21002009000600006.

Objectives: To describe the elders with end stage renal disease (ESRD) undergoing continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD), their caregivers, and the care the caregivers provide to the elders. Methods: This was a qualitative study with 9 caregivers. Data were collected through oral history. Data analysis consisted of thematic content analysis. Results: The sample consisted of 5 male and 4 female elders and all them were dependent on caregivers to change the dialysis collection bag. The mean age of the participants was 70 years. Among the caregivers, 8 of them were female with a mean age of 41.5 years and they provided 8 hours of care to the elders daily. The main theme emerging from the content analysis was "home care for the elderly undergoing continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis." Conclusion: Caregivers need support for the development of knowledge and skills to deal with the elders' demand of care, particularly in regard to the management of CAPD.
