The Health Communication Master�s of Science Program at Chapman University in Orange, California is conducting a research study that examines interpersonal communication patterns of people who have provided unpaid long-distance care to an individual who is age 55 or older in the past year.

The purpose of this study is to learn more about your interactions and experiences as a distant caregiver. We are seeking volunteers to complete an approximately 15 to 20-minute online survey that includes questions about demographic and relational information, your interpersonal communication with the individual receiving care (i.e., the care recipient), and your health.

To qualify for this study and receive compensation, you must meet the following criteria:

1. Be age 18 or older
2. Live long-distance from the care recipient
3. Have provided unpaid care for a friend or family member who is age 55 or older in the past year

Distance caregiver participants who fit the above criteria and who provide valid email addresses will receive a $10 gift card via email within 1-2 weeks of completing the online survey.

Please note: Survey responses may be randomly verified before participants are compensated. Individuals may participate only once and receive one gift card.
