Abstract

Objective: Alzheimer caregiving literature usually focuses on caregiver outcomes like burden, depression and anxiety from a stress-coping paradigm. Yet, this approach has been criticized as it doesn't capture pre-death grief symptoms emerged in response to the unique pathology of the disease. The aim of this study is to investigate the reliability and validity criteria of the Turkish version of the Marwit-Meuser Caregiver Grief Inventory-Short Form (MMCGI-SF) developed to evaluate pre-death grief reactions of adult offspring caring for a parent with AD.
