Project Title: Family-centered information for caregivers

This project aims to develop two accessible information sources for informal caregivers of older adults and persons living with dementia at end of life. Info-flip pocket guides and an app will summarize important topics and will be linked to local available resources. Informal caregivers will be supported through reliable and readily accessible information about end-of-life care for older adults and people living with dementia. This looks to improve the ability to provide care in the home setting, helping to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations and contribute to informal caregivers’ own well-being.
