RODRIGUES, Monica Raggi  and  ALMEIDA, Rosimary Terezinha. The responsability to take care of the healthy of the pacient at home: a study of case. Acta paul. enferm. [online]. 2005, vol.18, n.1, pp.20-24. ISSN 1982-0194.

This work aims to identify the caregiver difficults in assisting pacients at home in order to establish recommendations to improve pacient care. A special form was developed to collect data on 103 pacients and 181 caregivers during the period of Sept. 1999 and Jan. 2000. The findings pointed out that pacients with low quality of care have a long time of dependency on care (p<0,0001). The authors believe that the quality of care to these patients can be improved if they get special attention, such as assistive technologies, and caregivers access adequate information.
