People with dementia sometimes do not cooperate with care. They may refuse to bathe, change clothes, or refuse to take medications. The purpose of this study is to test if a caregiver coaching program can help family caregivers better manage refusal behaviors by increasing their use of problem-solving strategies and decreasing any negative coping strategies. To participate, you must be at least 18 years old, live in Alabama, and live with and provide unpaid care to a family member with dementia who refuses help or care. You will receive 9 1-hour coaching sessions over Zoom at a time that works for you. You will be asked to complete surveys and questionnaires, and you will be paid for doing these things. All surveys and questionnaires are completed online. There is NO travel to UAB. Please email CURBIT@UAB.EDU for more information.
