Perceptions of the Caregiving Role Among Young-Onset Dementia Adult Child Caregivers

About This Program

By obtaining more knowledge about the perceptions of young-onset dementia adult child caregivers in Canada, the findings of this study can assist with the future development of age-appropriate resources, services, and supports for this population. This study may also highlight the need for the expansion of future research to learn more about the perceptions of young-onset dementia adult child caregivers.

This study has been reviewed and received ethics clearance through a University of Waterloo Research Ethics Committee.
