Minneapolis Star Tribune, May 29, 2009

A Minnesota researcher is testing ways to ease stress on those who take care of their parents with dementia. Minnesota researcher Joe Gaugler is directing a federally financed $1.2 million research project studying those 100 caregivers to see what techniques work best. Gaugler believes a combination of education, support groups, and counseling on demand will result in healthier caregivers.
