The Roy adaptation model is a widely used nursing theory, but only a few studies have used it in the context of caregiving for the chronically ill. Many caregivers with chronically ill relatives suffer from stress and its consequences, and in an aging society, more and more people will be affected by stress. In this article, the author presents a middle-range theory of caregiver stress based on the Roy adaptation model as the first step in understanding the applicability of the Roy adaptation model in the context of stress in caregivers.
