The Family Caregiving programme is the first major programme dedicated to understanding family care of older persons in the Southern African region.
THIS FIVE YEAR PROGRAMME AIMS TO SUPPORT FAMILY CARE BY IMPROVING OUR UNDERSTANDING OF HOW FAMILY CARE IS EXPERIENCED IN THE REGION.
In working with academics, policymakers and NGOs from the region and beyond, we aim to improve the attention and support family caregivers and older persons receive locally and regionally. Our data will help us understand how family members’ social relationships shape care by examining the financial, social and health consequences of care. By investigating challenges to carers’ and care receivers’ relationships, we aim to better inform how the state, communities, NGOs and individuals can support family care.
