Abstract

The aim of this report is to describe the process and feasibility of having elders respond to standardized questionnaires in an Internet intervention program for caregivers of persons with dementia. Twenty-one persons with dementia (mean 75 years), and their spouse caregivers (mean age of 65 years) used the intervention program and responded to the questionnaires. Results indicated that with adequate support, elderly caregiver participants were able to provide responses to standardized questionnaires comparable to scores found in other caregiver studies using traditional methods. Suggestions are provided for further testing.
