Emotional Burden & Depressive Symptoms in Caregivers
A new episode of the CAPRA Minding Memory podcast is now available. In this episode, Donovan & Matt speak with Dr. Geoffrey Hoffman, a faculty member and researcher at the University of Michigan School of Nursing. Dr. Hoffman discusses the transition to the role of caregiver for partners of persons diagnosed with dementia – and the unique emotional burden and stress that they undertake. He also talks about using the Health & Retirement Study (HRS) to better explore the emotional stress and onset of depression in caregivers.
