Communication in the Family

Hello! You are invited to be interviewed about your experiences and communication patterns as someone who currently (or in the past) cares for your family member living with Alzheimer’s disease or another related dementia (ADRD). There are potentially things you are uncertain about regarding caring for your family member, and we are interested in how you communicate to manage these uncertainties. Uncertainty means the inability to predict what will happen or the unknown. For example, you might worry about your loved one’s well-being because their dementia makes their behavior unpredictable.

You are eligible if you:

  • Are at least 18 years old
  • Used to or currently help care for one of your family members who lives/d with ADRD (by care, this includes but is not limited to: Eating, bathing, transferring, managing finances, medications, chores, shopping, etc.)
