If you live in the Henderson or Las Vegas area in Nevada, UNLV is doing a study that will hopefully help with identifying how caregiver burdens affects the body, and how caregivers feel. The caregiver participant will need to be caring for an elderly parent or spouse who is at least 60 years old.
Blood will be drawn by a nurse who is part of the research team and you will need to complete three questionnaires, a process that should take no longer than 30-35 minutes. The title of this project is
“The biological and physiological response to a caregivers burden.”
If you are interested in participating, please call Michele Clark, RN, PhD, at UNLV. Her phone number is 702-895-5978 or email her at
This will turn out to be an important study that will help caregivers.
We all want to help the caregivers. In the meantime, give the gift that lasts forever and costs nothing, Adopt A Caregiver and tell them your friend Helene sent you.
Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene
