Photovoice

Focus groups were complemented by photovoice interviews with caregivers. Participants were asked to take photographs that represented their experiences as caregivers and as members of the GAP support groups. Participants were then interviewed either individually or in small groups. In some cases, when interviews were not feasible, the participant provided written annotations about the meaning of a particular image and its relevance for their experience with GAP services. The series of photovoice results included below are organized by 3 common themes that emerged from the interviews. These themes are “what it means to be a caregiver,” “ways GAP has helped,” and “needs the caregivers still experience.”
