Influencing Factors of the Perceived Formal Caregivers' Caring Competences for Elders with Dementia
Kim, Chun-Gill
The purpose of this study was to investigate demented elderly caring competences of the formal caregivers( FCs) and to identify the influencing factors of the caring competence.
A developed questionnaire survey was carried out using a convenient sampling method (N=201). Data were analyzed by applying descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA, Duncan test, Pearson’s correlation coefficient, and stepwise multiple regression.
The average score for the perceived FCs’ caring competences was 3.63±0.6. Among the FCs’ caring competency factors, care for elders with dementia(knowledge, attitudes, and skills) was the highest. Also the competences were positively correlated with job satisfaction, work experience, and numbers of participation in dementia education. Job satisfaction(ß=.30, p<.001), gender(ß=.19 p=.006), working place(ß=-.16 p=.020), and burden of caring dependency(ß=.16 p=.022) significantly influenced the perceived FCs’ caring competences.
The study found that job satisfaction was an important factor for FCs’ caring competences, therefore FCs’ work loads should be carefully assigned to increase their job satisfaction. This research findings can be utilized for the management of FCs working in institutions for elders with dementia.
