Basic Study Information
Purpose:Study Reference #: 00005296
The objective of this pilot study is to provide initial evidence of the role of mindfulness
training in improving social disconnectedness - including social isolation and feelings
of loneliness - in older caregivers for family members with Alzheimer's Disease and
Related Dementias. Participants will be randomly assigned to one of two study arms
where they will use either a (1) smartphone-based MBSR app (Headspace) or (2) active
control (breathing app) for 14 days. Loneliness and quality of social interactions
will be assessed using end-of-day diaries at initial visit and 14-days after enrollment.
