Today my guest was Dr. Carey Candrian from University of Colorado Hospital, discussing a new research project and study she is working on. Dr. Candrian is performing a research study, funded by the National Institute of Health, looking into the unique caregiving needs of people 55+ with dementia who identify as LGBTQ.
University of Colorado Hospital and The national Institute on Aging
Will you help us be part of improving communication and health outcomes for LGBTQ individuals with Alzheimer’s or related dementia?
Dr. Carey Candrian and team have funding from the National Institute on Aging to better understand the experience of people caring for a person who identifies as LGBTQ, is 55 years or older, and is living with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia about your experience.
What to expect:
- Interviews are done in-person or by phone
- Interviews will last ~ 45 minutes
- Participants will receive a $50 gift card
Ultimately, our goal is to let the stories and experiences of actual caregivers inform the solution(s) to improving this experience for LGBTQ people.
