If you care for someone with memory loss, you may qualify for a new research study. Riverside Health System and the University of Minnesota are testing an online tool for the loved ones of people experiencing memory loss.

About Care to Plan

Care to Plan is an online care planning tool that helps families managing memory loss identify and access supportive services recommended for them. The goal of the study is to determine if Care to Plan can provide  personalized support to family caregivers of people with memory loss. Participants who successfully complete all study components will receive up to $75 for their time (some participants may be eligible for another $25 if selected for a final telephone interview).

During this six-month period, participants will be asked to:

  • Complete an initial survey
  • Work through the Care to Plan tool with Senior Care Navigation or receive usual care through Senior Care Navigation
  • Complete follow-up surveys after three and six months
  • You may also be asked to participate in a telephone interview about your experiences using Care to Plan at the end of the study
