Project Description: 
In this project we explore caregiver needs during isolating circumstances – such as pandemics, natural disasters, or other situations that restrict daily routines and access to services – through formative interviews and assessments. Participants will complete an initial screening and eligible individuals will then be invited to enroll and participate in an individual assessment, and/or a focus group/focused interview, to gather data that help us understand the experiences of caregivers during isolating circumstances. The data gathered will be compiled and analyzed to help develop new interventions for family caregivers. Eligible caregivers must be caring for an older adult experiencing progressive memory loss or another chronic illness.
