Seniors wanted for UCCS research study
Students from University of Colorado, Colorado Springs geropsychology program are looking for seniors to participate in a research study, which features a free cognitive training program. Cognitive training is typically delivered in-person, which is no longer possible during the COVID-19 pandemic. This study explores the possibility of delivering cognitive training to people with mild cognitive difficulties through video chat. It also tests whether training can improve everyday cognitive problems and quality of life. Training includes 60-90-minute sessions once a week for a period of six weeks. Enrollment is ongoing now through late spring of 2021. Sessions are completed with an individual clinician over Microsoft Teams video chat. Eligible participants must be 55 or older and living in Colorado, have been diagnosed with mild cognitive difficulties by a health care provider, have access to a webcam, smartphone, or other video chat technology. Interested seniors can contact Katie Stypulkowski, MA, at uccscogtrainingstudy@gmail.com or 719-345-7699.
