The Informal Caregiving Experience

Hello! You are invited to participate in an online survey about your experiences as an informal caregiver. Informal caregivers can be defined as an individual that is currently taking care of a someone else (i.e., spouse, parent, sibling, friend) that has been diagnosed with a chronic illness or disability (e.g., Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, cancer, physical disabilities). An informal caregiver is not a paid health aid for the care receiver.

We are interested in how prepared you felt when starting the caregiving role and how much becoming a caregiver has influenced your identity.

You are eligible if you:

  • Are not caring for a minor
  • Currently help care for one of your loved ones who lives with a chronic illness (by care, this includes but is not limited to: Eating, grooming, managing finances, administrating medications, transportation, shopping, etc.)
  • Caring for your loved one at least part time (approx. 20 hours a week) to full time
