I'm a graduate student researcher. I am currently doing research on adults caring for their aging parents. I think this is a really important topic because as caregivers of parents, we need to share our experiences with one another for support, guidance, and comfort. I'm also hoping that by writing this paper, I will bring to light some issues and concerns about caregiving that may help change or influence policy.
So, please tell me about your caregiving experience! I would like to interview people like you over the phone about your caregiving experience.
Participation is voluntary! Names and identifying information will not be disclosed.
If you decide to take part in this research study, you would:
• Be interviewed for approximately an hour at your convenience
• Provide helpful insight about the joys and struggles of parent care
• Assist with providing suggestions for elder care policies
If you are interested, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. All information used in this study will be going towards the completion of a master’s thesis and conference presentation.
