The Quebec Association on Gerontology (AQG) published, in March 2016, the issue no. 3, volume 13 of the Vie et vieillissement journal. This issue was aiming at addressing the various aspects of the caregivers’ reality. Marie Crevier, a doctoral student, andArzemina Spahic-Blazevic, former master student, both under the direction of Marie Beaulieu, published an article to highlight aspects of their study project which are related to this subject.

Marie Crevier and Marie Beaulieu co-wrote an article on the Care practice of older adult volunteers involved in countering mistreatment of older adults. (To learn more about this subject, see Marie Crevier’s PhD description project). The article co-written by Arzemina Spahic-Blazevic and Marie Beaulieu was dealing with being a refugee caregiver of an older adult (To learn more about this subject, see Arzemina Spahic-Blazevic’s PhD description project [French only]). If you want to read both articles, you must subscribe to the AQG’s Vie et vieillissement journal
