Abstract

Objective: To analyze the structure of subjective well-being in family caregivers of older adults using different structural models. Of all analyzed models, the one that has made the largest contribution to the existing body of knowledge is the one composed of seven hierarchical factors ranked as follows: four first-order factors (personal satisfactions, material satisfactions, positive affections and negative affections), two second-order factors (cognitive and affective components) and a causal higher-order structure understood as subjective well-being. This model showed satisfactory adjustment indexes (RMSEA = .049 (.040-.059), CFI = .968, SRMR = .0521, x2 (gl) = 225,390 (114) p ≤ .001), thus replicating though their data the causal network proposed by literature on well-being at a theoretical level.
