Abstract:

The objective of this study was to determine burnout and loneliness levels of housewives during home-quarantine process caused by the COVID-19 outbreak. 111 housewives were included in the study using the online survey method. Personal Information Form, Housewives Burnout Scale (CUBAC) and UCLA Loneliness Scale (U-LS) were used to collect data. The average age of housewives was 38.75 ± 9.98, the mean score ECUBAC was 60.14 ± 17.97 and the mean score U-LS was 44.84 ± 8.78. The results show that relations with husband and children, education levels, time of marriage, the number of children and responsibility level of house-works affect the level burn-out and loneliness levels of housewives (p <0.05). During the quarantine process caused by the epidemic, the intensity of housework has increased, as all family members were at home and the care and nutritional needs of the individuals changed due to the epidemic. However, despite this increase, the fact that only housewives were responsible for housework, just like before the quarantine, caused them to feel high levels of burnout and loneliness.
