Resumo

Este estudo transversal teve o objetivo de este estudo teve o objetivo de analisar o nível de sobrecarga de 126 cuidadores domiciliares de idosos com Doença de Alzheimer, além de associá-lo com variáveis sociodemográficas, de saúde e atuação profissional. Foi utilizado um questionário de avaliação do perfil sociodemográfico, de saúde e de cuidado do idoso, e o Inventário de Sobrecarga de Zarit. A coleta de dados ocorreu entre fevereiro à maio de 2023. A análise dos dados foi realizada por meio do teste Qui-quadrado de Pearson (p<0,05). Encontrou-se maior frequência de cuidadores com sobrecarga intensa que cuidam do idoso por mais de 12 horas por dia (p=0,015), residem com o idoso (p<0,001), realizam cuidado informal (p < 0,001), atendem idosos que foram diagnosticados há no máximo quatro anos (p=0,047) e que possuem Doença Crônica não Transmissível associada ao Alzheimer (p=0,006). Cuidadores que experimentam maior sobrecarga, dedicam mais tempo aos cuidados, vivem com o paciente e oferecem cuidados informais abrangentes.
