Abstract

This literature review examines minority caregivers of patients living with dementia, issues affecting their quality of life, as well as implications for the quality of care provided to their loved ones living with dementia. There is evidence that minority caregivers face significant barriers, which may impact the quality of care provided to their loved ones. Some common characteristics observed among minority caregivers of people with dementia include a lower level of education, language barriers, and inadequate social supports. We hypothesized that caregiver quality of life affects the quality of care provided to persons living with dementia.
