Join the Study

This study may be right for you if you are:

  • 21 years of age or older
  • Able to read, speak and understand English
  • The primary caregiver of a person living with dementia for at least 6 months
  • Currently managing challenging dementia-related behaviors or psychological symptoms
  • Own and are comfortable using a computer, smartphone, or tablet
  • Have internet access

What should I expect as a research participant?

If this study is right for you, you will be asked to participate in an initial telephone interview of about 1 1/2 hours in length. You will then be assigned by chance to one of 2 groups (Group A or B):

Group A
If you are assigned to Group A, you will receive access to the WeCareAdvisor immediately and be asked to use the online platform for 6 months. You will receive tips and reminders either by email only, or a combination of telephone and email.

Group B
If you are assigned to Group B, you will receive access to the WeCareAdvisor after 3 months and be asked to use the online platform for the next 3 months. You will receive tips and reminders from a member of the research team by either email only, or a combination of telephone and email.

Regardless of group assignment, you will be interviewed at the start of the study and then at 1, 3 and 6 months by telephone by a trained member of our research staff.

At the conclusion of 6 months (from the start of the study), you will receive a book that lists many of the strategies provided by the WeCareAdvisor. You will no longer have access to use of the online platform. A member of the research team will also contact you by telephone to inquire about your satisfaction with participating in the study.

To see if this study is right for you and learn more about the study, please email us at WeCare@drexel.edu, call us at 267-359-1111, or complete the WeCaredAdvisor Information Page below and a WeCareAdvisor study team member will reach out to you. Accounts are monitored Monday–Thursday 9am – 6pm EDT and Friday 9am – 1pm EDT. All inquiries received outside of these times will be answered the next business day.
