The research lab at the University of Florida (Director: Dr. Susan Bluck) has developed a fun and novel life story activity (i.e., digital Life Story Book) for supporting people with early-stage dementia or memory difficulty, and a family caregiver, during these days of isolation due to the pandemic. 
The activity takes place completely remotely. As this is a research project, besides their own Life Story Book to keep, participants will be paid $60. 
They are also partnering with the Alzheimer’s Association in Florida.
Who can join the study? Qualified people who:
  • Are age 60+ with memory difficulties (early dementia) & friend/family member
  • Have computer, email & internet access
What will I do?
  • Share important memories from your life
  • Provide materials for us to create a Life Story Book for you!
  • Review your Life Story Book daily (2 weeks)
  • Complete questionnaires
Benefits to you:
  • Your own digital Life Story Book
  • $60 for fully completing study
How long does it take?
  • Four phone visits over 2 months.
  • — they set these visits at times that work for you
