Dementia-Friendly Online Worship

Dementia-Friendly Online Worship Services

Purpose: The goal of this study is to design and test how tailored 10-minute online worship services support the well-being of caregivers and their family members with memory impairment or a form of dementia.

Families will be asked to attend 6 services online and participate in up to 3 interviews to answer questions that will assess their well-being. Families will also be observed during service. Persons with memory impairment or dementia will only participate in worship services.

Accommodations will be made for families without access to technology.
