Leveraging information technology to support caregiver medication management for individuals who live with dementia

More than 21 million people provide unpaid care for millions of people living with dementia in the U.S. With input from caregivers, researchers from Regenstrief Institute, Indiana University, the University of Wisconsin and Purdue University are developing and testing Helping the Helpers, a user-centered, evidence-based app to support dementia caregivers as they help manage medications—very often multiple drugs for various conditions—of individuals who cannot do so independently.
