The purpose of this study is to gain an understanding about the use of educational pamphlets by caregivers of women with dementia. This study will randomly assign caregivers to receive one of two different educational pamphlets and is designed to gather information on how caregivers make health care decisions for someone with dementia.
The DECAD study is designed to support caregivers of women with Alzheimer's disease who are 75 years of age or older. We are hoping to learn how to better assist these caregivers in making medical decisions for their loved one.
The study involves:
Three caregiver interviews (in person or via phone). We will ask questions about caregiving and making medical decisions. To compensate your time you will receive a $25 Kroger gift card after each interview.
