New Challenge for Caregivers: The Internet
In the age of online living, caregivers lack support, resources and guidelines to help the vulnerable people who rely on them, according to an initial study, to be presented May 12, at the Association for Computing Machinery Human Computer Interaction (ACM-CHI) conference in San Jose, California. The study is one of the first to examine the role of caregivers in the online lives of adults with cognitive impairments from Alzheimer’s disease and other conditions. In a world where many everyday activities have moved online, caregivers face a new challenge: finding a balance between autonomy and protection of care recipients.
