This paper identifies the needs of caregivers, i.e. those who provide help to senior members of their families who are dependent and cannot perform the activities of daily living. Results are based on an explorative study that was conducted in 2017. The research used in-depth interviewing with 62 main caregivers. Altogether 76 different needs were identified and these needs were subsequently clustered into nine categories and described in detail. The identified needs may serve as a source of criteria for evaluating prospective interventions aimed at caregivers.
