The present study explored the impact of caregiver well-being on the quality of care provided to impaired elderly adults. Results indicated that well-being factors were strongly associated with potentially harmful caregiver behavior. Further, the data supported a model in which depression mediated the effects of other caregiver well-being factors on quality of care. Finally, some insight was provided with regard to the impact of both ADL impairment and care-recipient problem behavior on caregiver behavior. Specifically, ADL impairment, at least in some circumstances, moderated associations between well-being factors and depression, while problem behavior appeared to be an independent risk factor for potentially harmful caregiver behavior.
