    Caregiver study - young-onset dementia

    Researchers at the University of Waterloo are conducting a study to better understand the perceptions of adult children who have a parent with young-onset dementia. Those 18 and older who have had caregiving experience within the last two years are invited to participate in the online/telephone interview that will be between 45 and 60 minutes in length. By sharing your experiences, researchers hope to inform development of future age-appropriate supports for this population. Contact Camryn Berry at c3berry@uwaterloo.ca or call 519-503-2245.
