AbstractObjectives: This study investigated the influence of caregiving on the depressive symptoms of older spousal caregivers in China. Methods: Data came from the 2015 China Health and Retirement Longitudinal Study (CHARLS). The sample of this study included older adults aged 60 and above. The respondents were coded as spousal caregivers if they provided activities of daily life (ADL)/instrumental activities of daily life (IADL) assistance to their spouses and did not receive any ADL/IADL help. Ordinary Least Square (OLS) regression analyses were applied. Results: Results from the regression model indicated that spousal caregiving was significantly associated with depressive symptoms (p<0.01). The spousal caregivers showed more depressive symptoms than the non-caregivers. Among the spousal caregivers, the females and those who reported poorer health had more depressive symptoms than their counterparts (p<0.01). Conclusion: The results highlight the negative influence of caregiving on psychological health of spousal caregivers. Caregiver support should be targeted on the older spousal caregivers, especially the wife caregivers.
