- Quality of Life-Alzheimer's Disease [ Time Frame: 60 Days ]The investigators will evaluate patient health-related quality of life (HRQOL) by proxy (caregiver) assessment using the 15-item Health Utilities Index (HUI2), a generic health state classification system with preference-based utility weights derived from the general population. The HUI is one of the more widely used utility measures and has been used in previous studies of elderly with dementia and their caregivers.
- Change in Caregiver-Targeted Quality of Life Measure [ Time Frame: 60 Days ]The Caregiver-Targeted Quality of Life (CG-QOL) measure covers 10 dimensions of QOL relevant to caregivers of persons with dementia, incorporates non-health related issues as well as positive aspects of caregiving, and has demonstrated feasibility as a phone-based instrument in both English and Spanish. Eighty items are distributed across 10 scales: assistance with ADLs, assistance with IADLs, personal time, role limitation due to caregiving, family involvement, demands of caregiving, worry, caregiver feelings, spirituality and faith, benefits of caregiving.
