Abstract

We used a phenomenological method to examine how the caregiving experiences of Taiwanese women who care for a sibling with cerebral palsy (CP) influence their life decisions. In-depth qualitative interviews were conducted with six adult women, each of whom self-identified as being the sister most involved in caring for a sibling with CP. Themes emerging from caregivers' experiences were caring through interpretation, caring through protection, and caring through sacrifice. These ways of caring created unique considerations and tensions that appeared to have a profound effect on the women's major life decisions.
