DIFI organized a half day seminar on Exploring the "Experiences of Home Caregivers for Elderly People in Qatar". This Project was funded by DIFI in collaboration with University of Calgary-Qatar

The objective of the report is to investigate the experiences of Qatari and non-Qatari caregivers in Qatar who provide care for older family members. We focused on the stress and burdens of caregiving, coping strategies of caregivers, and the benefits caregivers garner from caregiving.
