Family caregivers spend a lot of time and energy caring for the elderly. While being a caregiver for a loved-one is rewarding, most caregivers report physical and emotional stress, ranging from high blood pressure to depression and mental exhaustion. If you are a family caregiver, we invite you to participate in a study that involves a one hour interview with you and your loved-one.

Eligibility:

  •     The participants reside in the Bay area
  •     The elderly individual has a primary family caregiver
  •     The elderly is 65 years or older
  •     The elderly is unable to perform at least 1 activity of daily living (ADL) as described in the Barthel
        Index
  •     Both the elderly and the caregiver are proficient in English
