Investigators in the College of Nursing at Rush University Medical Center are looking for family caregivers for a new research study.  This study will test the effectiveness of an 18-month multi-component health promotion intervention with family caregivers for persons with Alzheimer’s disease. 

Study participants will engage in six interviews and twenty intervention contacts.  All contacts will be arranged at the caregiver’s convenience and conducted in their home or by telephone.  No visits to Rush University Medical Center are required for this study. 

If you know of caregivers who might be interested in this study, please have them contact Dr. Caryn Etkin at 312-942-5242.

Study staff will conduct a brief screening interview to see if they meet eligibility criteria, and if eligible, will set up a baseline interview in their home.
