Do you help care for someone with dementia?  Researchers at Ohio University are studying how serving as a caregiver for a patient or patients with dementia can affect the caregiver. In exchange for participating, you will receive free cognitive screening with feedback on your cognitive performance and a $20 Walmart gift card!  

You May Be Eligible To Participate if:
  • You are over 50
  • You provide at least 5 hours of care per week to an individual with dementia; you do not need to live with this person.                                       
  • You are able to read and write in English  
Your participation will include answering questions about your physical and mental health, your general background, your experience as a caregiver, and your thoughts about your cognitive abilities.  You will also complete a brief battery of cognitive tests, about which you will receive feedback at the end of the study.
