This study explores caregiver burden among U.S. Chinese adult children. Utilizing a community-based participatory research approach, the Piety study conducted interviews with 546 Chinese adult children in the Greater Chicago area from 2012 to 2014. Caregiver burden was measured by the 24-item Caregiver Burden Inventory from Novak and Guest in five domains: time-dependence, developmental, physical, social, and emotional burden. Among participants, the average age was 47.6 years (SD±10.4) and 65.5% were female. Overall feelings of burden were correlated with older age, fewer household members, living longer in the U.S., and time spent providing care regarding ADL/IADL limitations. This study shows that U.S. Chinese adult children in the Greater Chicago area experience caregiver burden, which has wide implications for clinical practice and policy. Future research should examine the risk factors for and consequences of caregiver burden and its subtypes, as well as caregiver and care-receiver dyads to further understand caregiving in the U.S. Chinese community.
