Objective: To analyze the sociodemographic characteristics of the caregiver-person with a chronic non-communicable disease and the association between caregiving ability, caregiver perceived overload, and the sociodemographic characteristics of the caregiver-person with a chronic non-communicable desease hospitalized in a high complexity center. Material and method: Analytical, descriptive, correlational, cross-sectional study, carried out with 89 caregivers. Data were collected using the following instruments: Dyad Characterization Card, Caring Ability Inventory and Zarit Overload Scale. Results: Caregivers have a low level of caring abilities (84.3%) and report absence of overload (70.8%). A significant association was found between caring ability, overload and some characteristics of caregiving and dyads p <0.05. Conclusion: Results show an impact on caring ability and absence of overload, as well as an association between ability and caregiver's overload, which affects the possibility of solving care needs of people.
