Understanding Swallowing-Related Caregiver Burden in Caregivers of People with Dementia (Part A)
What is this Study about?
The Aging Swallowing Research Lab is looking for caregivers of individuals with dementia in Canada. We are conducting a study to better understand caregiving experiences in order to validate a new tool to help screen for caregiver burden related to swallowing difficulties.
The information you provide will be combined with information from other participants to help us better understand caregiving experiences, especially related to swallowing difficulties.
What Will Happen in This Study?
Your participation would involve a 15-minute online survey and compensation.
As part of this study, we are also offering optional swallowing assessments for care recipients with dementia. They will be compensated and receive a clinical report.
Who is Eligible to Participate in this Study?
You are eligible to participate if you are a caregiver to an individual living with dementia.
