Many and varied implications of caregiving have been reported in the literature. Caregiving has been associated with both negative and positive impacts and researchers have acknowledged the need for a greater understanding of the total caregiving experience. This paper is the first in a series of papers examining the complex and diverse reactions to caregiving within the context of a narrative review of the literature. The paper concludes that the consideration of the diverse, individual and complex experiences of caring for a relative or friend may assist health care professionals to identify at-risk carers and appropriate carer support needs.
