The UCLA Caregiver Sleep (CARES) Study


The UCLA Caregiver Sleep Study (CARES Study) is sponsored by the National Institute on Aging. The goal of the study is to examine the ability of Mindfulness Meditation versus Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia to reduce caregiver distress, improve sleep, and promote changes in overall health in caregivers age 50 and above. As a participant in this study, you will either be randomly assigned to a Mindfulness Meditation group or a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia group. Classes will be held weekly for 6 weeks. Once classes are completed, you will undergo 2 additional interviews over the next year about your general medical health and well-being and you will be asked to give blood samples. Participants will receive up to $ 800 in compensation.
