The decision-making processes of five long-standing caregivers of stroke survivors, when choosing to use community resources to manage their roles, were studied using qualitative methods supported by quantitative data. Prioritizing self-help, negotiating relationships, assessing the “fit ” of resources and supports, and navigating uncertainty were themes that influenced the decisions made by the caregivers. Strategic decisions made by caregivers can ease the burdens associated with this role.
