Join a Supportive Care Trial

Most dementia care today is crisis-oriented, intermittent and impersonal. The Care Ecosystem is a proactive model that emphasizes coordinated, continuous, and personalized care and aims to improve health and satisfaction for patients and their caregivers. The intervention will also try to reduce avoidable emergency room visits and hospitalizations, and delay entry into a nursing home.

The purpose of this study is to learn more about how a behavioral intervention that aims to increase positive affect can affect stress level, improve mood, and lessen the perceived burden of family caregiving for those who care for a person with dementia.
