Mikanová, Anna ; Dragomirecká, Eva (advisor) ; Jarolímová, Eva (referee)
Senior care is nowadays in majority a family care. This rigorous work focuses on the sources of support for informal carers of the non-self-sufficient senior. In order to evaluate the possibilities of supporting family carers, we need to know how they look at their care situation. The work is therefore based on exploring the experience of informal carers with care and discovering their needs. For setting up appropriate intervention strategies it is necessary to listen to those on whom the bulk of the responsibility for the caretaker lies. The first part of the thesis consists of a theoretical grounding of the issues of family care and support, which is provided to the carers. It also covers topics related to the altered role of carer (eg motivation for care, needs and difficulties of carers). The theoretical part of the thesis is supplemented by a chapter dealing with the gender issues of carers and the whole section summarizes possible sources of support for carers focusing on self-help groups. A qualitative research strategy was selected for research, and data collection was conducted through semi- structured interviews and the focus group method in two follow-up studies. At first, 20 semi- structured interviews with carers - 10 men and 10 women were carried out. In a special part, the use of...

Jarolímová, Eva ; Šulová, Lenka (advisor) ; Dragomirecká, Eva (referee) ; Jeřábek, Hynek (referee)
Due to its limiting effects on the independency of life, the Alzheimer's disease has a radical impact on a diseased person. Their dependency on others influences all their family members, though especially those ones, who are taking immediate part in the caregiving for their relatives. The new changes in the family caregivers' lifestyle have an extensive influence on their health and the care about the diseased itself. In this empirical study we intended to examine the presence and the intensity of a burden, an anxiety and a depression among the family caregivers, who are being provided with psychosocial and other professional help. It's a transverse survey among the 102 family caregivers caring for their relatives with diagnosed Alzheimer's disease or some other form of dementia. The caregivers were tested for the level of subjective burden by Zarit Burden Inventory (ZBI) and for the anxiety and the depression by Beck Depression Inventory (BDI II), Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS) and Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI), the results were processed with the statistical analysis and Pearson correlation coefficient. In the study sample there were 83 % of women and 62 % of the caregivers were older than 50 years. According to our findings 86 % of people caring for less than 2 years and 89 % of people caring...
