Resumo: In order to examine what is the best set of predictive variables of overall change in caregiver burden, along with 232 informal caregivers of dependent elderly people residing in the district of Braganc;a in Portugal, were selected as independent variables to loneliness, stereotypes about people elderly and caregiver self-efficacy, and appealed to the multiple linear regression analysis by Backward method. It was found that when loneliness as the variable that best predicts the variation of burden followed in descending order, the stereotype of physical and cognitive decline, selfefficacy for controlling negative thoughts about the act of care: self effectiveness for a break from the social network of friends, self-efficacy to respond to inappropriate behavior of the person cared for. Given the results, we conclude that there is a need for intervention with caregivers, families and the community as a whole, to reduce the loneliness of the caregiver through the establishment of self-help groups, as well as the development of programs learning that contribute to increased self-efficacy of the caregiver and reduction of stereotypes about the elderly.
