Jewish Grandparenting Project
This is a study of older, Jewish adults who are responsible for providing
primary care to both their grandchildren and their disabled adult children.
The study focuses on psychosocial effects of this population's caregiving
responsibilities. This is a needs assessment designed to survey the
health and mental health needs of this 'new' population.
The Principal Investigator for this study is Dr. Denise Burnette, and
the Co-Investigators are Ms. Evelyn Blanck and Ms. Leah Mason.
While the program is operating at JBFCS, funding is being sought
for the research component.
