Survey to help carers of people with dementia

15 June 2021

A CQUniversity Master of Clinical Psychology student is recruiting carers of people with dementia for a research project that looks at how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the caregiver experience.

Cairns-based student Maddysen Chen is inviting carers of people with dementia to take part in an online survey to help support caregivers into the future.

"The main goal of this study is to better understand the caregiver experience during COVID-19'"

she said.

Ms Chen is seeking primary caregivers over the age of 18 to complete the confidential 20-minute online survey.

Participation in a follow-up' 10-minute confidential survey two weeks later is optional and will place participants in the draw to win a $50 Coles-Myer giftcard.

"This research will guide us to help caregivers in the future' and may benefit the wider caregiver community."

A copy of the research findings will be made available by request in December 2021.
