The patient's sickness stage affects caregiver stress and well-being. This study's primary goal is to analyze the factors that influence the overall quality of life and explain each variation associated with the caregiver quality of life index cancer domain, although this is not the only focus. Additionally, the research looked at the emotional distress of family carers, which was previously thought to be a key element in determining the overall negative and positive aspects of caregivers' quality of life. The study also examines different environmental factors and also suggested appropriate supportive programs that are required to maintain and improve family care quality of life. Chronic disorders such as cancer need long-term treatment. Families play a crucial part in cancer care since they are the ones who are closest to the cancer patient and can best provide support. As a result, the family caregivers (FCs) may experience a sense of responsibility and decrease their quality of life (QoL). Quality of life is typically prioritized above extending life in cancer patients who have exhausted all curative therapy options (QOL). It was the primary goal of this research to discover the variables most strongly associated with a person's quality of life (QOL) in their last years (EOL). Cancer and its treatment have a significant influence on the quality of life for sufferers and their loved ones (HRQOL). Specifically, I want to look at three things: how advanced cancer patients and their spousal caregivers feel about their health-related quality of life (HRQOL); and, (ii) what factors influence their HRQOL. I also want to look at how couples' feelings of anxiety and depression affect their HRQOL.
