Caregiver Burden Self-Assessment Tool

This questionnaire, known as the Zarit Burden Interview, was first developed in the 1980’s to help caregivers and mental health professionals evaluate caregiver stress and burnout. While professional psychologists and therapists use this tool to assess clients who are providing care for loved ones, family caregivers who are concerned about their own welfare can use this quick quiz to receive a reliable and objective calculation of the level of strain they are experiencing.
