Researchers from the Medical University of South Carolina College of Nursing are seeking caregivers and their loved-ones with a recent Alzheimer’s or Mild Cognitive Impairment diagnosis to volunteer for a research study. The purpose of this study is to help test an educational program (SUPPORT-D) for families. The program will focus on managing daily stress, improving quality of life, home safety, and advanced care planning.


Participants who would like to join this study, will be sent program materials, asked to review them, and take part in two study visits over six weeks. These visits with a nurse will last 45- 60 minutes and are conducted virtually (via Microsoft Teams or telephone). Researchers will ask them to complete several surveys related to knowledge of Alzheimer’s disease, acceptability and feasibility of the intervention, stress, caregiver burden, symptom burden, quality of life, disease preparedness, safety, technology literacy, and advanced care planning. Study compensation is provided for time.
