Welcome to the Grandmother Study website. We have been working with grandmothers for nearly 20 years. Our research has taught us a lot about what it’s like to care for grandchildren, but we still have a lot more to learn!

We know that Grandmothers’ well-being is very important both for the grandmothers and for the grandchildren they care for. To address this we are testing two interventions to see which intervention does the best job at improving grandmothers’ well-being. The study will involve watching a video, answering four online surveys, and keeping a 28 day online journal.
