CREST Study

Greetings!

This is the section of the RESCUE website for caregivers enrolled in the CREST Study. Sometimes family and friends of Veterans with stroke feel stressed and unprepared for their new roles as caregivers. Our study helps caregivers learn about strokes and how to take care of themselves and their Veterans.

In this program, you will:

Talk with a registered nurse over the telephone and the RESCUE Messaging Center. The nurse will teach you about common caregiver issues. The nurse will also help you solve problems.

logo

Read assigned topics on strokes and caregiving each week. The reading assignments will be brief.

logo

Develop and revise your own problem-solving plan with the nurse's help.

logo

Answer questions about your health and your Veteran's health in three separate 30-60 minute telephone interviews.

You may also answer questions over the telephone to get your feedback about the study.
