Volunteers Needed for Dementia Caregiver Studies

Rice University is recruiting caregivers who are currently caring for a spouse or romantic partner with Alzheimer’s Disease, or related dementias, for two research studies funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  “Project Care” is a fully remote study of caregivers’ emotions and health during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Caregivers can participate in the study remotely, through online and mobile phone surveys, and will be compensated for their time.  “Project Act” is also a study of caregivers’ mental and physical health, with the long-term goal of developing interventions to improve caregivers’ quality of life.  Participants will visit Rice’s biomedical research facility, located near the campus in the Texas Medical Center, and will be compensated for each visit.  For more information on this important research of the health of Alzheimer’s caregivers, click on the links above or here.
