Summary:
The aim of this research is to study the experiences of male caregivers of people with Alzheimer.

The effects and difficulties they face through their experiences, the changes the disease brings to the individual and as a consequence of it and in the relationships between them, their sources of support and the positive aspects of the care and the positive meaning they give to it.
