Yale Study: Families Working Together With Alzheimer’s Disease

I am happy to share with you an article that outlines the innovative research done by an incredible age-inclusive champion, Dr. Joan Monin, associate professor in the Yale School of Public Health, Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences and the study’s lead author.  Please feel free to share this as appropriate.  Dr. Monin recognizes the span of caregiving age ranges and is conducting research to learn more.  The research suggests that a promising early intervention targeted at spousal care partners not only increases their quality of life but also may positively impact their partners living with dementia. 

Please see the full write-up on the intervention and outcomes.
