Abstract

Introduction: With aging, the elderly need help to perform their daily activities, which, depending on each family, may be necessary to hire professional caregivers, but this responsibility often falls on a family member. Objective: to survey national and international publications in articles published from 2015 to 2020 that show the Burden produced by the care and Quality of Life of family caregivers of long-lived elderly, as well as the fact that the Burden affects or not the Quality of Life Method: This is an integrative literature review. To prepare the question, the PICo strategy was used, and the process of searching for articles and inclusion criteria followed the PRISMA recommendations. From the review, a care educational technology was developed in the form of a booklet. Discussion: Regarding the profile of the participants, most were women, 91.7%. Regarding the quality of life of caregivers, of the 9 studies that analyzed this construct, 55% of the informants considered it unsatisfactory. About Burden, 10 studies evaluated how caregivers felt, 60% had moderate burden. Final considerations: Exercising the role of caregiver directly affects the Quality of Life of those responsible, mainly generated by Overload. It is up to nursing to train these family caregivers so that it is possible to reduce the burden. The proposed product is a Booklet of Nursing Guidelines for Caregivers of Elderly Elderly People, with items selected after obtaining and analyzing the discussions found in this review.
