The University of Virginia, in partnership with the Riverside Center for Excellence in Aging and Lifelong Health, is conducting a study on quality of life of African American caregivers.
We are looking for caregivers to complete a survey to help us better understand what impacts their quality of life.

You can participate if you are:
• An African American adult who is 18 years of age or older
• Caring for someone with memory loss for more than 8 hours each week.

You will be provided with a postage-paid envelope to return the survey and you will earn $15 for completing and returning the survey.
Please contact study coordinators, Christy Jensen, Ph.D. (757-220-4751), cjensen@excellenceinaging.org) or Ishan Williams, Ph.D. (434-924-0480) to get more information or to request a survey packet be sent to you.
