Family Caregiving

OBJECTIVE 3:

To rethink family caregiving in aging societies 

Objective 3 aims to advance the understanding of the dynamics of complex relationships between family members that provide and receive informal care, which is essential to support individuals and families living with care needs.

 

We will shed light on the impact of care over the life course on the economic and social wellbeing of caregivers, including specific links between family diversity and spatial‐geographic, socioeconomic, and health disparities in the context of family caregiving.

RESEARCH QUESTIONS

How do changes in family patterns and roles affect old age care practices?

How do family caring systems act and react in times of crises?
