Caregiving During Crisis

A team at Emory University has designed the fully online “Caregiving During Crisis” course to help informal caregivers of persons living with dementia adapt to caregiving during the COVID-19 pandemic. The free course, which is funded by the National Institute on Aging (NIA), focuses on three main topics: keeping you and your person safe, navigating the healthcare system, and managing home life with dementia. Participants will complete the program privately and at your own pace.

Eligible participants must be providing care for a family member or a friend with dementia, have access to the internet, and can read and understand English.

Participants will be asked to take part in a confidential interview to gather background information prior to starting. A second interview will take place after the course to provide feedback on ways the program might be improved. Compensation will be provided.
