“…These results differ from those found in general (3) and senior (24) caregivers. We also showed that senior caregivers tended to provide emotional support with no burden, datum that is contrasting and, in a certain way, counterintuitive, since older people of very advanced age have more diseases than younger ones (3) , which is why they could get more tired when providing care (4) . Explanations can be found in mechanisms of emotional self-regulation, which are more frequent among older seniors than among younger ones (11,22) .…”

“…A capacidade adaptativa da família, a força de ligação afetiva, as oportunidades de crescimento pessoal propiciam aos seus membros a capacidade de solucionar problemas, como elementos centrais á boa funcionalidade familiar 29 A proposta de investigar as diferentes intervenções em curto e médio prazo, tais como os grupos de apoio, se elas influenciam positivamente a satisfação com os cuidadores de idosos, mesmo com a presença de fatores negativos, como fragilidade e depressão, é necessária. Nesse sentido, novos estudos são necessários para a produção de subsídios teóricos destinados a estratégias de cuidados, além do aprimoramento de estratégias de autorregulação cognitivo-emocional orientados aos cuidadores familiares de idosos 30 .…”
