Abstract

Date Presented 4/8/2016

Familial interdependence is a concept that may not be familiar to many therapists. This study explored ways in which familial interdependence affects dynamics of caregiving in Latino families. Study results yield practical recommendations to improve quality of care when treating Latino older adults.
