Abstract


Aim: present the results of activities conducted by nurses to improve support to family caregivers of the elderly. Method: This is a qualitative study based on participatory methodology. Meetings were held with twelve family caregivers and team meetings with 8 nurses from July to March 2016. The records of the speeches were submitted to content analysis. Results: the caregivers exposed their difficulties, their dilemmas and the contradiction between public policies and reality. In response to caregivers, the nurses constructed a plan of action. Discussion: the problematization of the relationship between services, health professionals and population increased the network of support to caregivers accompanied in the Unified Health System. Conclusion: group activities are more than a moment of catharsis; they produce interaction, the strengthening of the service, and contribute to the promotion of health.
