Purpose:

This non-intervention qualitative study will use focus groups to assess the feasibility and acceptability of a proposed intervention for a future study. The focus group will discuss a potential biobehavioral family self-management intervention designed to improve sleep in persons with Alzheimer's disease (PAD) and their caregivers (CG).


Study summary:

Approximately 16 caregivers of home-based PAD/CG dyads (person with Alzheimer's disease/caregiver dyads) will be recruited from the community. A series of two audiotaped focus groups will be conducted with these caregiver participants. The first focus group will explore perspectives on what constitutes a feasible and acceptable intervention to improve their sleep and associated symptoms. The second focus group will consist of follow up and confirmation of findings from the first focus group. The intervention will be developed and refined based upon focus group findings.
