Beginning in March 2022, we will be beginning a study on the CONFIDENCE Financial Education Program for Latino Family caregivers. Caregivers to persons living with dementia spend over $10,000/year on the out-of-pocket costs of caregiving. These expenses include medications, home modification, transportation, and more. Compared to non-Latino caregivers, Latino families spend a far greater proportion of their incomes on out-of-pocket care expenses.
CONFIDENCE is a 5-part, weekly group program that will be offered jointly by UT Health San Antonio and the University of Southern California. Caregivers attending CONFIDENCE may be eligible complete in a research study. Additional information to come!
