Trial Purpose and Description
This is a qualitative, interview-based study focused on caregivers of persons living with dementia, that will 1) explore the bidirectionality of caregiving and sleep, 2) describe how sleep-promoting strategies are sought and used, and 3) describe barriers to seeking and incorporating sleep strategies and resources. Participants will be recruited through local networks and online platforms. Participants will each engage in one one-on-one interview (in-person, by phone, or by Zoom video platform) lasting approximately 50 minutes, with a member of the research team, guided by a script. Responses will be captured by audio recording and transcribed to electronic written files.
