Isi artikelDespite its importance, few studies have focused specifically on the informal technological caregiver. Therefore, this study explored the technological caregiving experience from the perspective of individuals assuming this role. Caregivers were asked to describe their experiences of caring for individuals dependent on inotropic infusion therapy for the management of their end-stage heart failure. Twenty themes reflecting the essence of the technological caregiving experience emerged from the qualitative narratives. Although technological caregiving was financially burdensome, socially confining, and psychologically distressing, caregivers still perceived it as a positive and rewarding experience.
