The purpose of this study is to learn about behavioral symptoms of dementia. We are investigating how changes in the environment or day-to-day activities may be related to the presence of behavioral symptoms.
Who Can Participate?
We are inviting caregivers of persons with Alzheimer’s disease to participate in this study. Caregivers need to live with their care recipient and spend most of the day with them. This is because we are asking caregivers to report on the behaviors they observe. Caregivers also need reliable access to the internet and own a iPhone.
Your decision to participate, and the information we learn from you will help us provide better support in the future to other caregivers and better care and support for people with dementia.
To participate you will complete brief diary surveys made up of multiple choice questions. You will receive the diary surveys on an app. You will get notifications when it is time to do a survey.
The study takes 8 days. To participate you will:
(1) Complete a 20 minute survey that helps us get to know you and your caregiving situation.
Receive 3-5 brief diary surveys throughout the day. These will take about 3 minutes to complete in the app.
(2) Complete a nightly recap survey in the app. This will take about 7 minutes to complete.
You will be compensated for your time completing the diary surveys. All study activities are completed at home.
