The "Understanding Needs" Project is designed to gain an understanding of the needs of informal caregivers. Researchers have designed a survey to highlight activities of daily living involved in the caregiving role, pain related to caregiver, and potential services desired. The initial phase of the study will consist of a focus group of informal caregivers to discuss current needs. The survey will then be refined based on knowledge gained from the focus group, and feedback from expert researchers. The refined survey will then be disseminated to caregivers throughout the country.
