Enquiring About Family Caregiving and Their Cultural Differences
International Federation on Ageing and The Cyril & Dorothy, Joel & Jill Reitman Centre for Alzheimer’s Support and Training, 2014
The purpose of this enquiry was to discuss and understand the cultural differences that can impact the family caregiving role, with three main components:
1. A description of the role that culture may/may not play within the context of care and practice;
2. An enquiry into the translation of research findings into caregiver-related policies and programs in diverse ethnic communities; and
3. An effort to better understand the sensitive topic of caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease and the influence of cultural diversity in the form of care provided, responses to services, access to resources, and navigating through the system.
