Caregivers of mental illness sufferers need supportive measures from health care providers due to the significant emotional, psychological, and physical burdens of this role. I consider the application of the Roy’s Adaptation Model, a middle-range nursing theory, by the nurse practitioner as a framework for assisting this population. Health care providers can apply these guided interventions to encourage, educate, and achieve the caregiver’s optimal wellbeing and quality of life.
