Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This research reviewed studies that investigated factors influencing the caregiving experience among informal Hispanic caregivers of dementia patients. This review identified 24 journal articles published between 1985 and 2003. Variables studied were depression and social support. In addition, methodological issues were detected such as sampling bias and multiple measurements. This review concluded that there is a need for an extensive, in depth research of the caregiving experience among Hispanics and further research needs are discussed.
