Our Caregiving Survey is Now Available in Four SEAA Languages
Translations available in Hmong, Khmer, Lao, and Vietnamese
Do you provide any type of physical, emotional and/or financial support to a relative, friend, or neighbor who is 55 or older with ongoing health problems or disabilities? If so, please consider filling out this anonymous online survey to help inform a study on elder caregiving in diverse communities.
SEARAC in partnership with the Diverse Elders Coalition is conducting a study with Asian American, Black, American Indian, Alaskan Native, Latino, and LGBTQ communities to understand the unique needs, motivators, and challenges that our families face in elder caregiving. Survey participants are those who provide care in person or remote, in the same household or in different households. Helping someone who is far away could be done by telephone, mail, or email, and care can be anything from helping with household chores to emotional support.
Your survey answers will be combined with 800 others who are similarly supporting an elder relative or friend. The survey takes 20-30 minutes to complete, and you will be entered into a raffle to win a $25 Target virtual gift card (20 winners will be selected), if chosen.
The deadline for survey completion is May 10. The current survey is translated in Hmong, Khmer, Lao, and Vietnamese. Please share with your networks, far and wide, to ensure Southeast Asian American voices are represented!
This research is generously supported by The John A. Hartford Foundation and has been developed in partnership with the Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging.
