    Abstract

    In this validity study, using factor analysis, the authors identified three dimensions (affection, skill, and attentiveness) of the Care Receiver View of Caregiver Role Enactment Scale, a self-report measure designed to elicit an elderly care receiver's evaluation of how well their family member carried out the role of caregiver. The scale is a revision of the Satisfaction With Caregiving Scale. This study was a secondary analysis of data from PREP: Family-based Care for Frail Older Persons. Care receiver mutuality was the variable most highly correlated with caregiver role enactment. Other variables related to good quality care were higher care receiver positive affect, better caregiver physical health, and lower caregiver role strain; husband caregivers were rated as giving poorer quality care.
