CSDE Affiliate Clara Berridge, CSDE Trainee Natalie Turner, and Affiliate Karen Fredriksen-Goldsen with co-authors Liu Liu, Sierramatice Karras, Amy Chen, and George Demiris recently published new research in JMIR Aging. The article assesses the feasibility of a unique tool Berridge designed to support family decision-making about diverse technologies used in dementia home care which include a number of monitoring technologies which can be considered invasive. Through a pilot study with dementia care dyads, the authors find the tool presents a feasible and acceptable intervention to educate, facilitate conversation about these technologies, and document preferences.
