University of Rochester Research Study: Social-Life Enhancing Activities for Caregivers (LEAF)
If you care for a loved one with Dementia with Lewy Bodies (including Parkinson's Disease Dementia), you could be eligible for the Social-LEAF Study. Researchers at the University of Rochester are testing an online positive emotion skill-building program to help caregivers cope with stress. This study is led by Dr. Benzi Kluger at the University of Rochester. Social-LEAF is supported by the National Institute on Aging, a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Six weekly skill-building sessions are delivered online via videoconferencing with a facilitator or through self-guided online lessons. Participants will receive a study-supplied tablet to connect to wireless internet, and can participate from a location of their choice. The Social-LEAF program is delivered remotely and does not require in person contact.
For more information or to see if you are eligible to participate, please contact us at 585-371-8446 or [email protected], and mention "Social-LEAF Study."
