Dementia-Friendly Worship Services To Support African American Families Living With Dementia

Start: May 1, 2019
End: April 1, 2022
Enrollment: 90

What Is This Study About?

This study will develop and test dementia-friendly worship services to improve the quality of life of African Americans living with dementia and their family caregivers. Two predominantly African American churches in the south Atlanta Metropolitan area (Fulton and Fayette counties) will offer dementia-friendly worship services to include familiar hymns, prayers and Bible stories, and short sermons. Together, the person with dementia and their caregiver will attend six of the worship services over six to eight weeks, either in person or online. Caregivers will complete surveys and take part in interviews to report on levels of caregiver burden and other quality-of-life measures.
