A pilot qualitative study of dementia perceptions and experiences of Nigerian migrant caregivers
Concomitant with the rate at which the United Kingdom’s population is aging, the increased number of older adults with dementia, and the decrease in relatives who are available to care for these older adults, there has been an exponential rise in the need for healthcare assistants in the workforce. Since the workforce now comprises of a significant number of migrant healthcare workers, some of whom originate from developing countries like Nigeria, it is important to understand some sociocultural factors that may influence the quality of caregiving provided for older adults with dementia in the United Kingdom. The objective of this study was to gain an in-depth understanding of dementia perceptions and experiences of Nigerian migrant formal dementia caregivers.
