Background & Aim: Caregivers' exposure to the duties and responsibilities arising from the care of hemodialysis patients is directly related to their quality of life and may lead to a reduction in their quality of life. The aim of this study was to investigate the quality of life of caregivers of patients undergoing hemodialysis referred to Shahid Rahnemoun Hospital of Yazd/Iran in 2020. Materials & Method: This descriptive-analytical study was performed on 55 caregivers of hemodialysis patients referred to Shahid Rahnemoun Hospital. Samples were randomly selected. To collect data, a questionnaire of demographic characteristics and quality of life related to the health of patients' family caregivers was used. Data were analyzed using SPSS software version 16 and descriptive and inferential statistics (Pearson test, independent t-test, and one-way analysis of variance) were used. Results: The results showed that the mean quality of life of caregivers was 53.00 + 22.65. The highest and lowest means were related to the dimensions of conflict (62.19 + 24.2) and mental restlessness (45.90 + 27.13), respectively. There was no significant relationship between the quality of life of caregivers with age, marital status, employment status, weekly care hours, and income (P >0.05). Conclusion: Hemodialysis affects not only the quality of life of patients but also the quality of life of their caregivers. Therefore, it seems necessary to address the problems of caregivers who care for these patients, and should be considered in planning.
