National Family Caregiver Support Program: North Dakota's American Indian caregivers (2003)
This report contains information reflecting the responses of caregivers from the North Dakota American Indian populations, collected as part of a statewide research effort to examine the needs for support services for family caregivers, identify patterns of service use and ascertain barriers to accessing support services. Data was collected on 383 Native American caregivers, including 231 informal caregivers and 152 grandparent caregivers, from five reservations. Data was collected on a face-to-face basis by trained project staff using either the survey developed for adults caring for someone 60 and older or the survey developed for adults 60 and older caring for someone under 18 years. The results include information about caregiver characteristics, access to support services, the use of and quality of services provided, the challenges in caregiving, and more.
