A New Dementia Study Seeks Out Family Caregivers

Researchers at Drexel University and UC Davis are recruiting family caregivers of people living with dementia for a nationwide, remote study funded by the National Institute of Aging.  Experts note there is very little research regarding the differences in the rural-urban prevalence of dementia, but many factors present barriers to care once a diagnosis is made for rural patients.  Eligible caregivers for the study must be 21 years or older, speak English, and have internet access and a capable device.
