"Drs. Carla Groh and Mitzi Saunders, faculty at the University of Detroit Mercy, are conducting a study on the transition from spousal caregiver to widowhood. We are actively recruiting women over the age of 65 years who assumed the caregiver role for their husband/partner who was diagnosed with dementia (any type) and who passed within the last 3 years. We are focusing on women who live in rural counties of Michigan. The study is longitudinal: women will be interviewed three times over 12-14 months. The women receive a stipend for each interview with the interviews lasting 60-90 minutes. We will come to their community for the interview (their home or a location of their choice). The first interview must be completed by the end of December 2017. If you know any women who meet the inclusion criteria (e.g. >65 years, caregiver for husband/partner diagnosed with dementia, husband/partner died within the past 3 years), please give them my phone number: 989-912-3739 or 313-993-2487. They are also welcome to email me at email@example.com. I am also happy to contact them if they prefer to give you their number and you forward their contact information to me. Thank you so much for your support of this research effort with rural women.
