This post has been updated as of November 2015. The JHU MIND study is still actively seeking participants!
It should be no surprise that AARP is actively involved in the fight against dementia-related illness. A new opportunity to fight these diseases is now available here in Maryland. Johns Hopkins University, School of Medicine, is currently enrolling eligible persons with dementia and their caregivers in the MIND Study – Maximizing Independence at Home – for people with dementia and their caregivers who live in their homes in Baltimore city and the surrounding counties.
The MIND at Home Study is a home-based care coordination program. The goal of this study is to help persons with memory disorders remain safely in their own homes, for as long as possible, while increasing the quality of life for both the caregiver and the person with dementia.
In addition to a memory care assessment by the MIND team, comprised of a physician, memory care coordinator and a nurse, eligible participants may also receive specialized care coordination for 18 months.
For more information and to get involved in the MIND study, please call 410-550-6744 or email the MIND team at email@example.com.
