Research Survey for Caregivers who assist with Medications

Are you an unpaid caregiver for a person with dementia who lives at home?

Do you currently assist this person with managing their medications?

If you are, we would like to invite you to participate in our research study on issues that caregivers for persons with dementia face when they assist with and manage medications for their care recipient.

Participation involves completing an online, anonymous survey which will take about 10 to 15 minutes of your time. The study is being conducted by researchers at the College of Pharmacy at the University of Manitoba who are interested in learning more about caregiving and medication responsibilities.

The survey is available at:
