This moderated discussion will feature panelists in conversation with one another about global trends in informal care, caregiver burden, and caregiver advocacy. Brief presentations will be followed by a lively discussion of cross-cultural approaches to informal care, the burden and quality of life impact experienced by informal caregivers, and the value that informal caregivers provide to people living with Alzheimer’s disease.
