Family caregivers provide unpaid care and are an important part of the healthcare system. They play an essential role in supporting their family members and others close to them. We would like to learn more about the health and well-being of unpaid caregivers as men and women from various racial and ethnic populations. This kind of study is lacking in Canada, and we hope to gather important information from unpaid caregivers to make recommendations for unpaid caregiver policies/guidelines, supports, and interventions to improve unpaid caregiver well-being across various racial and ethnic populations in Canada.
Research Goal. The impact of the intersections of race and ethnicity, sex, age and gender along with unpaid care work and caregivers’ health and well-being is unknown. The aim of this study is to describe the inequities of caregiver well-being across the intersections of race and ethnicity, sex, age and gender using a cross-sectional survey design.
