Date Presented 4/18/2015

In this study, we examined perspectives and occupational challenges and supports of caregivers of people with dementia. Results represent constructs such as role conflict, quality of life, and advocacy. Practitioners can obtain a general understanding of the caregiving experience to address their needs.
