About the Study:

The study is an early stage evaluation of the program which is based on the evidence-based in-person Savvy Caregiver Program and the evidence-based Tele-Savvy program (which has both self-paced and online group elements).

Purpose:

The study seeks to test the preliminary efficacy of Tele-Savvy @Home in improving caregivers’ well-being and sense of caregiving mastery.

What is Involved:

The study seeks to test the preliminary efficacy of Tele-Savvy @Home in improving caregivers’ well-being and sense of caregiving mastery.

Participants will be enrolled in the online course which they will be able to access at will for a period of eight weeks. They will be expected to complete the course at their own pace and will be able to view the material when and as often as they wish.  


Prior to enrollment, participants will be asked to take part in a phone or online interview (about 30 minutes) to gather background information and information about their and their care recipient’s well-being. The second part of the interview will be repeated 10 and 18 weeks after course enrollment.  


About 20% of those involved will be asked to take part in another, semi-structured interview to provide feedback on ways the program might be improved to better meet their needs.
