Description: Family and friends provide the majority of long-term care support (e.g., managing comorbidity) for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD); however, little is known about the informal supports available to persons with ADRD or the effect of these supports on the person with ADRD’s formal health care utilization over the course of the disease. Our proposed study will be the first to use nationally representative longitudinal data to examine the availability and effect of informal caregiving and whether there are differences by race/ethnicity. Our findings will have implications for the development of new policies and interventions that can strengthen informal resources of persons living with ADRD.
