Here are the details:
Research project: Using mobile apps in caregiving: The user experiences of family caregivers of a relative living with dementia
Do you use mobile apps to assist with caregiving for your relative living with dementia?
Are you interested in sharing your caregiving experiences using mobile apps?
If so, you may be eligible to take part in this study, which will explore the user experiences of family caregivers of a relative living with dementia who use mobile apps in caregiving. Mobile apps can include medication reminders, appointment trackers/calendars, “brain-training” games, and social media platforms.
The purpose of this study is to explore the experiences of family caregivers of a relative living with dementia who uses mobile applications (apps) in their caregiving role. This in turn can inform future mobile app developments to address caregiver needs of family caregivers and promote more effective caregiving and improved quality of life for care recipients and their family caregivers.
If you volunteer, your participation will include:
- Two interviews either in person or through the phone
- Take pictures with your mobile device
To thank you for your participation in the study, you will be offered a total of $20 in gift cards (a $10 gift card will be given after the first interview and another $10 gift card will be given after the second interview).
