Families take on complex tasks to care for a family member living with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or other form of dementia. Most often they do not receive training to take on this care and it is often learned by trial and error. This study is being conducted to test the effectiveness of Juntos/Together, an intervention to teach family caregivers to provide care for their family members/friends with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease or other form of dementia. The Juntos/Together intervention has been specifically adapted for Latino family caregivers.
You may be eligible if you:
1) Provide care for a family member/friend living with Alzheimer’s Disease or other form of dementia
2) Are aged 18 years or older
3) Self-identify as Latino or Hispanic
This 6-week online program has been designed specifically for Latino family caregivers to build confidence around providing care for their family member/friend living with some form of dementia
Participants who complete the program will be compensated up to $120.
