The focus group (N = 6) was conducted in one long-term care facility. CNAs identified three themes that represent the process of successful adaptation to the nursing home. Emotional displacement was followed by a period of assimi...

: Presently, there is a dearth of theoretical models to guide research on the population of former dementia caregivers. The purpose of this article is to describe the development of the Post-caregiving Health Model and its potential for generating a more nuanced understanding of the health of family caregivers following the death of a care recipient with dementia. The model highlights the impact of personal and environmental characteristics, appraisal, coping, and emotion on long-term health out...
