Samenvatting

Informal caregivers of the frail elderly often experience
the demands placed on them as a heavy burden and a
threat to their quality of life. Informal care refers to the
unprofessional and unpaid assistance provided by partners,
family or close friends [1]. Frail elderly people suffer
from age-related problems in different domains of
daily functioning, such as physical, psychological and social
domains, and are at risk of severe problems in the
future, such as falls, hospitalization, disability and death
[2]. As a result of the myriad of continuously changing
problems and the chronic nature of frailty, providing informal
care to these patients often entails increasingly
intensive care tasks over a prolonged period of time [3].
