The purpose of this research study is to see if delivering a telehealth mealtime training program to Caregivers of people with Alzheimer’s disease and/or related dementias or providing educational materials to Caregivers is the better way to improve meal-time enjoyment in the home and overall quality of life for both the Caregiver and their loved-one.

If you are eligible and agree to take part in this 6-month study, you and your-loved one will be partnered with a research team member and have an online meeting with them each month over a period of 6 months. During these meetings, you will work together to devise a monthly meal plan for your loved-one and monitor its progress. You will also be asked to complete monthly surveys about your loved-one’s overall quality of life and their mealtime behaviors. You may or may not benefit from this study; however, a potential benefit includes receiving training and information about caring for people with dementia and mealtime issues. You will also receive study compensation for your time and effort.
