Asian American Family Caregivers for Stroke

We’re looking for Asian American caregivers to take a 25-minute survey regarding factors that contribute to caregiver burden. The purpose of the study is to investigate how help-seeking behaviors and spirituality correlate with perceived feelings of caregiver burden in AA caregivers. Researchers aim to look at the relationship between mental health-seeking attitudes, spirituality, caregiver burden.
