Family Caregivers’ Journeys, Social and Community Support

Printer-friendly version

Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Ideation Lab is currently conducting research to understand the journey of family caregivers and investigate the social and community support practices of carers. This research may help technologists and policy makers become aware of the unique socializing practices of family caregivers and how this understanding resents new opportunities for new designs and policy changes.

We are now recruiting family caregivers and social workers as participants for this research. Participation will involve one in-person or phone interview, approximately 60 minutes. In this research, participants will be asked several questions in a semi-structured interview format (conversational). Participants will be compensated for their time with a $20 Amazon gift card. The interview will be recorded for purposes of transcriptions and research analysis only. The researchers will respect participants' confidentiality, rights and dignity, and will use the data in a responsible way.
