Dr. Jasneet Parmar and her research team from the University of Alberta are conducting a research study to understand how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted family caregivers in Alberta since our last survey in July 2020.
Family caregivers are critical to enabling Albertans needing care to remain at home. They provide 75- 90% of the care to community dwelling Albertans. We also know that caregivers of group homes, supportive living, or long-term care residents provide essential emotional and social support and continue to assist with 10 to 30% of the care.
If you are a family caregiver, could you complete this brief survey to help us understand the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and what you need now to maintain your own wellbeing and support the person you care. The survey should take about 20 minutes to complete:
