Researchers at Weill Cornell Medicine are conducting a research study examining well-being and resource use in dementia caregivers. The aim of this study is to identify and examine the needs of caregivers and the types of resources and support services that would be most beneficial to promote well-being in caregivers.
If you are eligible and agree to participate, you will be asked to complete an online survey lasting 20-30 minutes. Then, you will be given the option to participate in a follow-up phone interview with a member of our research staff. You will be asked to answer some questions about your demographic characteristics, care responsibilities, challenges experienced, and ways you have coped with those challenges. Then, you’ll be asked to answer some questions about your use of community resources, barriers to accessing and using resources, and suggestions for resources that you would be interested in using in the future based on your own personal needs.
You will receive a stipend of $25 for your completed surveys. For those who choose to participate in the open-ended interview, you will be compensated with another $40.
If you have any questions about this survey, please feel free to email Francesca Falzarano email@example.com or call (646)481-2858.
