How and why we do research

Why do we conduct research at Caring for the Caregiver?

We do research with family caregivers and persons living with dementia to 1) identify and understand what kinds of challenges they may experience, 2) develop programs and interventions, and 3) evaluate programs and interventions to make sure they are beneficial.

What kind of research do we do at Caring for the Caregiver?

We use a range of methods, include surveys, interviews, and occasionally “biobehavioral research” where we collect physical health information.
