Participants needed for study on caregiving for family member with memory problems

From: The Center for Gerontology

Are you helping a family member with memory problems? The Center for Gerontology is seeking grandchildren, siblings, nieces/nephews, and step family members (any relationship) living in Virginia to participate in a research study about caring for a relative with dementia living in the community (not in an assisted living or nursing home). This study involves one initial phone interview (approx. 70 minutes) and a brief phone interview for 8 days in a row (15-20 minutes each evening).

You will be asked questions about your experiences providing care, family involvement and use of paid services, and challenges you face caring for your relative.

Compensation is $110 for full participation (VT IRB# 20-742). Interested? Visit the study website, call: 540-231-9250 or email us at
