Study Description

The Department of Neurology is conducting a research study for adults who provide care for a loved one with memory or thinking problems. The purpose of the study is to evaluate a method of teaching caregivers about memory loss and dementia.

In the study, you will attend six 1.5-hour weekly group sessions online or in-person where you will be taught ways to better navigate caregiving. You will also answer questionnaires a few times throughout the study about yourself and the person to whom you give care.

Study-related activities are provided at no cost.
