Activity, Health, and Burden in Caregivers

Study Description:
This research is studying the differences in life activities, participation levels, health-related behaviors, and mood between adults who identify as caregivers and adults who do not identify as caregivers. Participation will involve completing several short questionnaires to examine your life activities, participation levels, health-related behaviors, and mood. The survey should take about 30-45 minutes to complete.
Aphasia Friendly Study Description:
This study will examine life activities, participation, health-related behaviors, and mood for caregivers and non-caregiving controls. Participation will involve completing several short questionnaires to examine activities, participation, health-related behaviors, and mood. The survey should take about 30-45 minutes to complete.
Inclusion / Exclusion Criteria:
Due to the recruitment sites, we expect most of these people will be older. However, the only age restriction for participation is that they are older than 21 years. Eligible participants will demonstrate either unaided or aided hearing intact enough to hear instructions in a quiet room and visual acuity, with or without glasses, to discern words and pictures on the written and pictorial material. Individuals with self-reported communication impairment that affect their ability to communicate will not be included in this study.
