Caregiver burden has negative consequences on the perceived health and quality of life of caregivers. There is limited research on the positive aspects of caregiving. A descriptive convenience sample of 89 caregivers of patients on hemodialysis responded to an online survey distributed on the National Kidney Foundation's email list. Participants completed the Self-Assessed Health Measure (SAH), Positive Aspects of Caregiving (PAC), and the Caregiving Stress Appraisal (CAS) survey instruments. Caregivers with higher self-assessed levels of health, who view their caregiver role positively, experienced lesser degrees of burden (Pearson r=-0.537, p=0.000; and r=-0.335, p=<0.001, respectfully). Healthcare providers must take into consideration the health, wellness, and needs of unpaid caregivers.
