The research presented in this thesis aimed to gain an understanding of experiences with family care, explanations given for the causes of dementia and the communication about dementia among family caregivers from Turkish, Moroccan and Surinamese Creole migrant groups in the Netherlands. An additional aim is to provide a picture of the effects of the “Knowing about forgetting” educational programme on the knowledge, ability to talk about dementia, use of informal and professional care, perceived pressure of care and quality of life of Turkish-Dutch and Moroccan-Dutch family caregivers of people with dementia.
