AbstractThere are currently 700,000 carers caregiving for 850,000 people with dementia in Britain, with Bangladeshi caregivers three times more likely to provide family care compared with their White British counterparts. However, few studies have been conducted to explore how caregiving for a loved one with dementia affects caregivers in Britain. The purpose of this study was to highlight the impacts of dementia on Bangladeshi caregivers. The roles of the caregivers were physically, psychologically, and socioeconomically demanding, particularly when their relative’s condition gradually worsened. This study will also help improve the advice, care, and support available for other ethnic minority caregivers.
