Henderson, J. Neil; And Others
Gerontologist, v33 n3 p409-14 Jun 1993
Alzheimer's disease caregiver support groups were developed simultaneously in two cities with existing Alzheimer's disease support groups but without ethnic minority use. "Ethic competence" concept, featuring ethnographic methods, was applied in African-American and Hispanic communities in both sites. In 2 years, 114 ethnic minority primary caregiver and patient dyads were identified, and African-American and Hispanic support groups were functioning. (Author)
