Description of the Mirela Program

Flyers: Participant | Bulletin Board  

We are looking for Caregivers of individuals with Alzheimer’s Disease or other dementia to participate in a free program about dementia and caregiving.

Mirela is being developed by Photozig (at the NASA Research Park) and Stanford University, in collaboration with the Alzheimer's Association and other organizations. This is a research study funded by the National Institute on Aging (part of the National Institutes of Health).

The goal of Mirela is to evaluate and develop materials for helping caregivers to cope with caregiving, alleviate related distress, and improve their quality of life.
