University of Illinois researchers invite you to participate in Social Engagement Program for Care Partners of Persons with Dementia . This program provides opportunities for caregivers to have short, casual conversations with others on topics outside the role of caregiving, from the comfort of their own home. This study is not meant to replace any ongoing support group participation but is rather intended to be a way for caregivers to attend to their social health and have a brief respite from their caregiving role.
In keeping with our mission to accelerate enrollment into Alzheimer’s research studies, here is some information about a study that is looking for participants.
If this study is not a good fit for you, please consider sharing with friends and family.
Participants are asked to attend two events per week for four weeks as part of this program. Each video chat event lasts approximately 45 minutes. Participants also complete three assessments, two prior to the program, and one at the end of the program. Participants are paid $30 for each assessment completed.
Researchers are looking for people who:
• Are 60+ years old
• Have been caring for a relative with dementia (either living with, or helping remotely) for at least 3 months
• Have no significant memory or communication impairment
• Have access to a device with a webcam, microphone, and internet which can be used for video chat
• Are fluent in English
