    De quoi consiste cette étude ?

    Early detection of brain changes is crucial to prevent cognitive decline and dementia. This study uses electroencephalography (EEG) to record the brain's electrical signals during simple tasks, with the hope of validating a measure that can improve early detection of Alzheimer’s disease.

    We are recruiting 150 individuals with mild memory issues and mild dementia at Baycrest in Toronto and Bruyère in Ottawa. In a separate study we are also recruiting older adults with no memory problems. The results of both studies together will help us determine if our new EEG measure can detect abnormal changes in brain health early on and if it can help predict future cognitive changes. We hope that this new test will be used in the clinic to identify individuals who may benefit the most from early treatment and interventions.

    De quoi consiste cette étude ?

    We aim to explore how gender, social, and sensory factors influence the experiences of people who are living with cognitive decline and their spouses. We will complete a 90-min in-person interview with dyads (people living with cognitive decline and their spouses). Individuals are eligible to participate if the older person or their spouse lives with memory problems, experiences hearing impairment, and if the dyad has ever lived together in the community. Results may help identify ways to support the well-being of individuals with cognitive impairment and their spouses, paving the way for future studies.

    De quoi consiste cette étude ?

    Informal caregivers provide much-needed support to friends, family and loved ones suffering from dementia and related conditions who continue to live at home. Smart home technologies allow providers and caregivers to monitor patients while simultaneously aiding with daily tasks such as remembering to take medications. Although smart home technology has become a common intervention with many benefits, there is very little evidence surrounding informal caregivers’ thoughts, perceptions and needs when patients are utilizing this intervention. There is a necessity to gather insights from this user group to increase uptake and proper use.

    Critères d’éligibilité

    - Currently a non-medical caregiver of a dementia patient who is living at home

    - Over the age of 19

    De quoi consiste cette étude ?

    This study aims to understand the needs and experiences of caregivers in managing medications for people living with dementia (PLWD) to enhance future resources. In stage one, caregivers of PLWD will be interviewed to gain insights into their needs and preferences for resources. In stage two, healthcare providers from various backgrounds and settings will be interviewed to understand how they support medication management for PLWD.

    By understanding caregivers' experiences and needs in medication management, this study strives to contribute to the development of improved resources for caregivers. Ultimately, improving medication management practices has the potential to enhance the quality of life and health outcomes for both PLWD and their caregivers. By empowering caregivers with effective tools and resources, we contribute not only to the well-being of individual caregivers and care recipients but also to the broader societal goal of fostering a supportive and sustainable healthcare system for those affected by dementia.

    Critères d’éligibilité

    You are eligible to participate if you are:

    - An caregiver who provides informal, unpaid care to a friend or family member diagnosed with any form of dementia

    Alert systems such as United States’ Silver Alert and Scotland’s Purple Alert support first responders in locating missing persons with dementia. In Canada, provinces are responsible for Silver Alerts. To date, Alberta and Manitoba amended Missing Persons Acts, but have no Silver Alerts. British Columbia has a citizen-led Silver Alert, yet no provincial legislation. This study examines how policies and programs for alert systems are developed and implemented in Canada, Scotland, and the United States. Findings will inform policies and implementation of alert systems to optimize the safety and well-being of people living with dementia at risk of going missing.

    Critères d’éligibilité

    have experience or interest in using Silver Alert to locate missing persons with dementia and are a/an:

    • Person living with dementia

    • Care partner

    • Alzheimer Society staff

    • First responder

    • Service provider

    • Technology developer
