We Need Your Help! Research Study Participants (Caregivers) who know Someone with a Disability Wanted for Interviews

Getting services at home or in the community is important for people with disabilities. To make those services better, we need to know if and how the services are working. We are testing questions about how well Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) are helping people live the lives they want. We need your help to make sure the measures provide valuable information.

In this research study, we will meet with you over videoconference. We will talk with you and ask questions about the experiences of someone you know with a disability (e.g. provide care) and determine how well you believe you can answer questions about that person. We may record the interview.

To take part, you must:

  • Be at least 18 years old.
  • Know someone well who has a disability (e.g. caregiver) and receives services or supports for the disability (Physical, Mental health, intellectual and developmental, Age-related, or Acquired Brain injury/TBI)
  • Provide consent.
  • Be willing to take part in a 60-90 minute interview(s).

Everyone we interview will get a $20 gift card per interview.
