It is important that caregivers of people living with dementia feel supported during the COVID-19 pandemic. We want to know more about the caregiver experience in these unprecedented times.

This study is looking at how the pandemic is affecting caregivers and factors that may impact their psychological wellbeing. We are also looking how we measure this impact with the new questionnaire.

If you are a primary caregiver of a person living with dementia in Australia, and are 18 years or older, you are invited to complete a confidential online survey that will take approximately 20 minutes to complete.

Even if this research does not benefit you directly it may benefit the wider caregiver community.

A copy of the research findings will be made available by request in December 2021. Please contact the student research directly if you would like a copy.
