Abstract

The Hispanic/Latino people have a unique set of cultural values and experiences that differ from those of the Caucasian population. These social norms and mores clearly affect how Latino families provide caregiving to older adult relatives with Alzheimer's Disease or a related form of dementia. It is important to understand these social norms, attitudes, and beliefs in order to be able to create programs and interventions that will be effective in this population. This is a case study of the effective use of a cognitive/behavioral intervention designed with the specific needs of Hispanic/Latino caregivers in mind.
