Below is information about a study with a little different twist. If you are caring for a loved one who has dementia, you may want to help out with this research. Carol
Volunteers wanted for a research study!
My name is Laura Foran Lewis and I am a doctoral student in the School of Nursing at the University of Connecticut. I am looking for individuals who may be willing to participate in a research study about caregivers. The purpose of this research study is to explore the experience of caregiving for a loved one with dementia (including Alzheimer’s disease) at the end of life. To participate in this study, you must have taken care of someone with dementia who passed away in the last 10 years. You may have cared for them at home, or they may have been in assisted living or in a nursing home. Participation includes answering a few questions online about your experience as a caregiver. To find out more about this study or to participate, please see the study website: www.caregiverstudy.weebly.com.
Thank you for your consideration!
