Family Caregivers of Relatives with Dementia: Health and Support Study

A research study being conducted with the University of Texas at Austin is seeking individuals who are primary at-home caregivers for a family member diagnosed with some form of dementia (moderate to advanced-stages). This diagnosis may be related to Alzheimer’s disease, or other forms of dementia, or Parkinson’s disease.

This project is led by Karen Schlag, a doctoral student in Communication Studies at UT. Participants completing an anonymous, online survey for this study will help researchers and medical professionals learn more about different support and communication needs caregivers in this situation may have.

Completing the study should take between 20-25 minutes. Participants who complete the survey will be emailed a $5 Amazon gift card.
