AB  - BACKGROUND: Understanding caregiver's perceptions of their family member's memory
      loss is a necessary step in planning nursing interventions to detect and address 
      caregiver burden. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to characterize
      caregivers' perceptions of their family members' memory loss and identify
      potential correlates within Leventhal's common sense model (CSM). METHODS: This
      secondary analysis used baseline data from a larger randomized controlled trial. 
      Patients with memory loss and their caregivers (N = 83 dyads) from the community 
      were included. The adapted Brief Illness Perception Questionnaire (BIPQ) assessed
      caregivers' illness perceptions. Eight additional instruments measured correlates
      within the CSM. Responses were described; multiple linear regression was used to 
      predict BIPQ dimension scores, and logistic regression was used to predict
      dichotomized BIPQ scores. RESULTS: Most caregivers were female, White, and
      spouses of the patients; they reported a range of perceptions on the nine BIPQ
      dimensions. Patients' cognitive function consistently emerged as a significant
      correlate of caregivers' illness perceptions, explaining the most variance in
      caregivers' perceived consequences, identity, and treatment control (p < .01).
      Caregivers' reactions to patients' behavioral symptoms and caregivers' trait
      anxiety were associated with perceived illness coherence (p < .01). Caregivers
      with higher severity of daily hassles and White caregivers perceived that their
      family members' memory loss would last longer (p < .001). DISCUSSION: Caregivers'
      perceptions of family members' memory loss varied; distinct dimensions of
      caregivers' illness perception were associated with a range of clinical and
      psychosocial factors. This exploratory study demonstrates the complexity of
      applying the CSM to caregivers of persons with memory loss.
