Caregiver Heart Health

Some who serve as caregivers for loved ones with debilitating memory diseases like Alzheimer’s find their own health affected by years of round-the-clock worry and vigilance. USF’s College of Nursing is conducting a two-part clinical study: one component looks at the effectiveness of an in-home monitoring system that tracks the ‘patient,’ the other part tries to help caregivers improve their sleeping habits and health of their heart. Find out more on this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
