  1. The results of the trial would seem to be a more accurate insight into a caregivers health if participants were from different regions. Those in metropolitan Boston area seemingly would have access to the same caregiver respite programs, etc. There is a huge difference in available services even county to county.

    I also wonder if there hasn’t been the same focus and assumption on caregivers stress as on the impact of poverty on families. We convince many they are “poor” when they did not identify as such prior to the conversation!
