dc.description.abstractThis is a descriptive-exploratory, qualitative research. The aim is to analyze the perceptions on the quality of life of caregivers who care for older adults with Alzheimer's Disease. It was conducted in the municipality of Betim, located in the Metropolitan Area of Belo Horizonte, Brazil. 32 interviews were conducted with informal caregivers.
