Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging

Characteristics of Caregivers and Care Receivers in the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging

Tuesday, February 19, 12 - 1 PM EST - Join presenter Debra Sheets (Associate Professor in the School of Nursing at the University of Victoria) for Characteristics of Caregivers and Care receivers in the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA). Caregiving has become a common role for Canadian families as the numbers of older adults with comorbidity, disability and frailty who need help with daily activities (e.g. meal preparation, transportation) continues to grow. The CLSA is the first longitudinal study to collect data on Canadian caregivers and care receivers. It offers a unique opportunity to examine patterns of caregiving and care receiving (e.g., who provides care, what types of care, and more). This presentation examines patterns of caregiving and care receiving by sociodemographic characteristics, self-reported health, and type of care given/received (e.g. IADL/ADL, chronic conditions).
