A growing body of evidence points to numerous impacts of palliative care giving including psychological difficulties such as stress, anxiety, and depression, financial and occupational difficulties such as activity restrictions and relationship challenges, and the impact of the physically demanding aspects of care giving such as fatigue (Robinson, Pesut & Bottorff, 2012). This study aimed to identify the specific needs of informal caregivers based in a rural area through exploration of their own lived experiences.
