Academic Research on Elder-care
By Amanda W. on Wed Sep 19, 2012 at 11:32 AM EDT
Missouri State University is currently conducting thesis research on elder-care. The aim of this study is to examine the benefits available to employed caregivers and how this affects relationships with their direct coworkers. Your input can help to improve working conditions for employed caregivers and their coworkers!

YOUR HELP IS NEEDED IF:

YOU WORK AT LEAST PART-TIME AND ALSO CARE FOR AN ELDERLY RELATIVE, FRIEND, OR SPOUSE
or
YOU WORK DIRECTLY WITH SOMEONE WHO HAS ELDER-CARE RESPONSIBILITIES

By completing a brief (approximately 10 minute) questionnaire you can contribute to improving work environments and the work/family benefits available to employed caregivers.

This study is supervised by Dr. Carol Shoptaugh. The research team at Missouri State University ensures that your participation is confidential and secure. We will not collect identifying information about you or your employer such as name or email address. This project has been approved by our Institutional Review Board.

If you would prefer a paper questionnaire, we can mail one to you and reimburse you for return postage fees.
Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns!
