IDEA Study

IDEA Study

Aging with Pride: IDEA is recruiting adults aged 50 and older with memory loss or other dementia symptoms and their care partners. Either the person with memory loss and/or the care partner needs to be LGBTQ. The participant with memory loss and their care partner (a spouse, partner, friend, or others who assist them) will participate in a 9-session program. Trained coaches teach the pair a set of behavioral strategies including education, effective communication, and problem-solving techniques. Coaches also instruct them on individualized exercise programs (e.g., balance/flexibility/low-impact exercises). The care partner completes 5 telephone surveys over the course of one year and receives $125. All study activities are completed virtually using easy video chatting. This study accepts participants in Washington, Oregon and California.
