Rationale of the Study
Stress is a physical and emotional stage which is always present in the personas a result of living. It is simply a fact of nature -- forces from the inside or outside worldaffecting the individual. The individual responds to stress in ways that affect theindividual as well as their environment. Because of the overabundance of stress in one’smodern lives, one usually think of stress as a negative experience, but from a biologicalpoint of view, stress can be a neutral, negative, or positive experience.In general, stress is related to both external and internal factors. External factorsinclude the physical environment, including job, relationships with others, home, and allthe situations, challenges, difficulties, and expectations one is confronted with on a dailybasis. Internal factors determine your body's ability to respond to, and deal with, theexternal stress-inducing factors. Internal factors which influence the ability to handlestress include one’s nutritional status, overall health andfitnesslevels, emotional well-being, and the amount of sleepand rest they get. The degree of stress in someone’s lifeis highly dependent upon individual factors such as their physical health, the quality of their interpersonal relationships, the number of commitments and responsibilities theycarried, the degree of others' dependence upon, expectations, the amount of supportreceive from others, and the number of changes or traumatic events that have recentlyoccurred in their lives. The situations and pressures that cause stress are knownas stressors. It is anything that puts high demands in a person or forces one to adjustcan be stressful. This includes positive events such as getting married, kind of job wherea person is in, going to college, or receiving a promotion.
The word "caregiver" is not just those who are caring for a patient withAlzheimer's disease. But a caregiver is anyone who provides help to another person inneed, whether that's an ill spouse or partner, a disabled child, or an aging relative.Furthermore, Autism is a mental disorder wherein a person having this particular disorder displays a delay in social interaction, language and symbolic play. Individualswith autism have great difference in terms of skills, behaviors and sensory system fromnormal people. Stimulations like sounds, vision and touch have a huge effect on aperson with autism. Infants or children having this particular disorder find it harder tointeract and engage in normal activities, thus in most cases, these particular patientsneed supervision. The role of a caregiver is more demanding in this kind of appointmentbecause unlike any other caregiver, this situation where in autistic children cannotcommunicate clearly has a problem in social interaction etc can bring a lot of stress onthe part of caregiver.Most recentreviewstend to estimate a prevalence of 1–2 per 1,000 for autismand close to 6 per 1,000 for ASD; because of inadequate data, these numbers mayunderestimate ASD's true prevalence (wikipedia.org/wiki/Autism).Caregiving often takes a great deal of time, effort, and work. Many caregiversstruggle to balance caregiving with other responsibilities including full-time jobs andcaring for children. Constant stress can lead to "burnout" and health problems for thecaregiver. Caregivers may feel guilty, frustrated, and angry from time to time.As a result of this crucial role, Caregiver Stress is more common which is definedas a syndrome that can lead to exhaustion and has some traits in common withexhaustion. In fact, the stress caregivers experience is a mixture of physical, emotional,and mental exhaustion. This is often called "burnout". Caregivers may experienceburnout when they don't get adequate help or when they overextend themselves
