Are you an older adult (55yrs+) or a caregiver who is interested in technology use in daily activities and social life?
You may be eligible to participate in a research study!
The University of Ottawa, in partnership with other universities in their region, would like to find out about the views of seniors and seniors’ caregivers on technology such as computers, mobile telephones and the Internet. We are interested in how these technologies are used or can be used in daily activities and social life by caregivers and the seniors to whom they provide care. We would also like to find out how easy or hard these technologies are to get and to use.
If you participate, you will be asked questions in an interview lasting up to about 1 hour.
The entire session may take up to 90 minutes. The interview will be located at the University of Ottawa or a place that is agreed upon by you and the researchers to meet face-to-face.
YOU ARE ELIGIBLE IF YOU ARE:
• Able to speak and understand English
• 18 years of age or older
• A family member, friend or personally hired caregiver who provides support to a senior
who has cognitive impairment
• Providing support for a minimum of 10 hours a week
• Living in Toronto, Ottawa, or Montreal
An honorarium will be offered as appreciation for your time.
