Course Recruitment

Are You a Caregiver for Someone with Alzheimer’s Disease or a Related Illness?

Enroll in our Caregiving During Crisis Program. This program was designed to help caregivers adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic and other crises. Our Emory University research team is studying the effects of this course on caregivers’ sense of confidence and mastery.

The program course will share a variety of caregiving strategies from the experts, including:

  • Ways to maintain a safe home
  • Techniques for controlling infection
  • Tips for leaving the house, or allowing others in

And a lot more.

Caregiving During Crisis is a fully online program, and it is private and confidential. You take the program by yourself at your own pace. If you enroll in the program, we will invite you to take part in up to 4 interviews by phone or video conference. Interviews last between 45-60 minutes. Participants will receive compensation for each interview completed. 

Eligibility Criteria:

  • People who identify as the main caregiver for someone living with dementia
  • Caregivers whose person lives in the community (not in nursing home and not enrolled in hospice services and plans to be there for the next 3 months)
  • Caregivers who read and speak English
  • Access to a computer with an internet connection
