The sample consisting of 1000 informal caregivers was recruited offline from a panel of about 80,000 German-speaking people ranging in age from 40 to 85 years. The sample was weighted based on the German Ageing Survey 2014, a representative survey of 40 to 85-year-olds living in private households in Germany [23, 24]. Those who reported taking care of someone aged over 60 for at least 6 months (i.e., inclusion criterion 1) were invited to participate in our survey. Further, the care receiver had to be allocated a level of care according to the compulsory long-term care insurance in Germany (i.e., inclusion criterion 2, from 1 = low level of care to 5 = high level of care [25] and be living at home/ in a community dwelling with or without the informal caregiver (i.e., inclusion criterion 3).
