Virtual Coaching to Optimize Dementia Caregiver Respite Time

Start: October 20, 2020
End: September 30, 2023
Enrollment: 150

What Is This Study About?

Respite is planned time away from caregiving to allow a caregiver to rest and recharge. The Time for Living & Caring program provides family caregivers with support, education, and resources to make the most of their respite time. With input from caregivers and others, this study will create and test the effectiveness of an online version of the program. Participants will be randomly assigned to receive either the online program for eight weeks or be waitlisted to receive the program at a later time. Researchers will assess changes in the frequency and satisfaction of respite time, as well as caregiver well-being.
