For Chinese, providing care to dependent elders is still a life-long
filial obligation for adult children due to the influence of cultural
traditions. Studies reported on family caregiving by Chinese adult
children in the U.S., however have been mostly qualitative. The purpose of
this study was to explore the relationships between caregivers' cultural
traditions and their appraisals of family caregiving and health outcomes
applying six steps of structural equation modeling. A five-latent hybrid
theoretical model of Chinese adult children family caregiving was proposed
based on three theoretical perspectives: social exchange theory, role
theory, and stress-coping theory. Exchange theory was used to reflect the
process of the interaction between the caregiver and the care receiver.
Role theory covers the gap in social exchange theory to understand the
appraisal of family caregiving role acquisition. Stress-coping theory was
used to depict the overall family caregiving experience. A descriptive
correlational design with a causal modeling approach was used to test the
theoretical model with 137 Chinese adult children family caregivers in the
U.S. Measures originally developed in English were translated to and
validated in Chinese using strategies for linguistic equivalence including
translation, back-translation, multilingual technique, and a review panel.
LISREL 8.7 Window version was used for model testing. Findings suggest the
five-latent hybrid theoretical model fitted reasonable well with the data,
as indicated by Chi-square test (úq2 (29), n=137)=25.86, p=.63, relative
chi-square ratio (úq2 / df)=.91, CFI=.99, GFI=.96, AGFI=.93, SRMR=.00, and
RMSEA=.00. The model shows that caregivers' cultural traditions play a
significant role in shaping their appraisals of family caregiving and
their health, both directly and indirectly. Awareness of clients' cultural
beliefs is vital to provide culturally congruent, meaningful, and
respectful nursing care.
