UVic study seeks feedback from seniors, caregivers

Latest News

Are you a senior who has experienced memory loss and lives at home? Or maybe you help care for a senior with memory loss?

The University of Victoria would love to learn about the challenges you face and your thoughts about potential solutions.

As part of a research study called "A patient-oriented approach to improving at-home care: understanding current challenges," discussion groups will be held to learn more from seniors and those who help care for them.

Who can participate?

  • people age 60 and over who have had changes in their memory or thinking skills
  • people who are helping care for someone with memory loss
  • those who live in their own hoes (not in a place that provides care)
  • those who can discuss ideas in English 

What's involved?

A 90-minute discussion group will help us learn about the challenges of aging at home. We plan to use this information to come up with potential solutions to current challenges and gaps in care.

To learn more
