Welcome to the WeCareAdvisor Research Study!

Welcome to the WeCareAdvisor Research Study!

The WeCareAdvisor is a research study funded by the National Institute on Aging. The study is evaluating whether use of an online tool (the WeCareAdvisor) can provide caregivers helpful strategies to manage dementia-related behavioral and psychological symptoms that in turn reduce stress and enhance confidence. The WeCareAdvisor walks caregivers through an easy-to-use step-by-step approach to understand why dementia-related behavioral and psychological symptoms (such as agitation, restlessness, irritability, repeated questions or other behaviors) occur and provides strategies that are customized to the family’s situation to help manage such behaviors.

This research is led by Dr. Laura N. Gitlin of Drexel University and Dr. Helen C. Kales of University of California, Davis and their research teams.
