Posting for Laura Lewis, a doctoral student seeking current and former caregivers to participate in a research study she is conducting online. Details below.


Hey everyone, I am not currently a caregiver, but I am an oncology nurse and a graduate nursing student studying dementia after my experiences taking care of my grandmother at the end of her life. I am looking for help with a study I am doing for my dissertation and I am posting the information here…

Volunteers wanted for a Nursing research study on caregiving for a loved one at the end of life!

My name is Laura Foran Lewis and I am a doctoral student in the School of Nursing at the University of Connecticut. I am looking for individuals who may be willing to participate in a research study about family caregivers. The purpose of this research study is to explore the experience of caregiving for a loved one with dementia (including Alzheimer’s disease) at the end of life.

I am looking for individuals who took care of someone with dementia who passed away in the last 10 years. You may have cared for them at home, or they may have been in assisted living or in a nursing home. Participation is entirely online and includes answering a few questions about your experience as a caregiver. It can take as long or short as you like, depending on how much you decide to share.

To find out more about this study or to participate, please see the study website: http://www.caregiverstudy.weebly.com/ or email me directly at laura.foran@uconn.edu.

Thank you for your consideration!
Laura Lewis, RN, MSN, Student Investigator
Principal Investigator: Cheryl Beck, DNSc, CNM, FAAN
