Daily Engagement in Meaningful Activity (DEMA) intervention for MCI patients and their family caregivers
I have developed and pilot tested a program of research focused on positive health, strength-based and family-center interventions, especially promoting engagement activities, functional performance, and quality life in older adults with cognitive impairment and their family caregivers. I also collaborated with interdisciplinary scientists in the NIA-funded Indiana Alzheimer Disease Center. I am ready for a full scale test of this innovative, theoretically-based, dyad-tailored, supportive intervention.
