The Center for Gulf Studies at Qatar University organized the 8th annual international interdisciplinary conference entitled “Gulf Families:Continuity and Change” in collaboration with the Doha International Family Institute
Exploring caregiving for the elderly is of the utmost importance as the family as a social institution is thought to be the cornerstone of society in Qatar. Also, the family is of particular importance for older individuals, especially when their physical and/or mental health declines and they can no longer function independently. Once this happens, it is often members of the family (e.g. a spouse or child) who become informal caregivers for the elderly person or persons requiring support. This report examines the impacts, challenges, benefits and coping mechanisms of family caregivers in Qatar.
