With this purpose in mind, the following features of the action research approach are worthy of consideration (Koshy, 1).

Caregivers differ in the relationships they have with their care recipients (e.g., spouse, adult child, other relative, in-law, neighbor or friend), their living arrangements (e.g., co-residing vs. not living with the care recipient), whether the person is a “primary” caregiver or someone who provides more secondary and supplemental support.
