Description

Join us for our February CLSA Webinar: Characteristics of Caregivers and Care receivers in the CLSA

This webinar will be presented by Dr. Debra Sheets, associate professor in the School of Nursing at the University of Victoria, via WebEx.

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). In addition, descriptive statistics explore the relationship of caregiving and care receiving with quality of life indicators (e.g., social activities and life satisfaction). All results are based on a subsample of CLSA participants who report providing care, receiving care, or being both caregivers and care receivers.
