Caregivers of LGBTQ+ Older Adults of Color

We are researchers at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro conducting a research study on the experiences of caregiving for older LGBTQ+ adults of Color. For the purpose of the study, we are intending to explore how informal caregivers make sense of their lived experiences with caregiving for older LGBTQ+ adults of Color. 

Study participation entails:  

  • One 30-minute screening interview over the phone 
  • Two of 60-90 minutes interviews each on Zoom (only audio will be recorded) 
  • Two member-check meetings of no more than 30 minutes that will not be recorded. 

To compensate you for your time, we will be offering up to $80 in gift cards for your participation. Completion of each interview and member-check meeting will result in a $20 gift card. 

You would be eligible to participate if: 

  • You are 18 years or older 
  • You are currently in the caregiving role for a family member, intimate partner, or friend 
  • Your care-receiver is an older (50+) LGBTQ+ adult of Color (Black, Indigenous, or Person of Color) 

If you would like to participate or have any questions about this study, please contact us at LGBTQCaregiverResearch@gmail.com.  

This study has been approved by The University of North Carolina at Greensboro Office of Research Integrity.
