Department of Political Science and Sociology, University Carlos III of Madrid
The research “Caregivers for older people: situation before the Dependency Act and evaluation of programs for carers”, is funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (CSO2009-10290, VI Plan Nacional de I+D+i,2009-2013). The project has two objectives: 1) deepen and update about the current situation of caregivers of the elderly and, 2) evaluate the programs and support services for these carers. Our study relies on a methodology based on triangulation, combining quantitative and qualitative techniques.
