A new website needs family caregivers of individuals with Alzheimer’s Disease or other dementia to participate a research study funded by the National Institute on Aging (part of the National Institutes of Health).
The site, iCarefamily.com, is being developed by Photozig (at the NASA Research Park) and Stanford University, in collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Association and other organizations.
The goal of iCare is to evaluate and develop materials to help caregivers cope with caregiving, alleviate related distress, and improve their quality of life. Family caregivers who participate in the study receive compensation of $50, free access to online resources and will be asked to share their opinions about the site’s materials and programs. Initial participation is limited to the first 120 family caregivers over the age 21 who care for for persons with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia.
