Evercare study of Hispanic Family caregiving in the U.S (2008)
This survey of Hispanic caregivers contains information about the prevalence of caregiving in Hispanic households, the impact caregiving has on caregivers' employment, the burden of caregiving and the type of support Hispanic caregivers want. The study finds that more than one in three Hispanic households (36%) have at least one family member caring for an older relative, compared to 21% of all U.S. households with a caregiver. Survey participants expressed strong support for caregiver information, tools and resources in Spanish, while over 70% indicated that training sessions, including online training, which teach caregivers skills would be helpful.
