As the United States (U.S) enters the twenty-first century, the aged 65 and older is growing more ethnically diverse. Among them, Asian and Pacific Islander elderly has been growing in the fastest rate. One of the important contributing factors to this phenomenon is the immigration to the U.S. Many elderly immigrants have followed their children to this country. Although family caregiving is well studied and has received much attention in this country, little is known about immigrant minorities. The overall goal of this research project is to identify the needs of family caregivers of Taiwanese elderly immigrants with chronic illnesses or disabilities and to understand their experiences. The knowledge obtained will be critical in designing innovative approaches within the appropriate culture context for meeting the needs of family caregivers and their elders in the future study. Based on the human becoming perspective, a qualitative descriptive design will be used for this study with ten Taiwanese-Americans who provide care to parents or parents-in-law with chronic illnesses or disabilities. Data will be gathered by in-depth semi-structured interview by phone or in person. All will be audio taped and transcribed. Data will be analyzed according to the analysis-synthesis processes for a descriptive-exploratory study. The researcher listened to the audiotapes while reading the transcripts to immerse the self in the descriptions of the participants. The themes related to the needs and the caregiving experiences will be extracted from the transcripts.
