Abstract

The goal of the current chapter is to explore some of the popular theoretical frameworks used to study the experiences of caregivers. The chapter discusses the relevance of these theoretical frameworks in the context of India, and compare and contrasts them to research in the West. It critically examines household living arrangements and complexities in identifying the primary caregiver in India, especially in the context of elder care in multigenerational households. The chapter concludes by discussing the knowledge gaps and the way forward to study caregiving issues around the elderly in India.
