MIT AgeLab Caregiver Study - Call For Participants

The MIT AgeLab is building a caregiver panel to learn about your experiences and thoughts as a family caregiver. To determine if you qualify for the panel, please answer a few questions in this Survey which should take about 5-10 minutes to complete. Those who complete the survey will be entered into a raffle for gift cards.

Once you join the panel, you will be contacted approximately every other month with brief 10-minute online surveys about various aspects of your life as a caregiver. Each of these following surveys will give you additional opportunities to enter a gift card raffle. You may also be invited to participate in interviews with researchers, focus groups with other caregivers, and panel discussions with MIT's industry partners. Participation is voluntary.

Your participation on this panel will help advance the understanding of caregiving and improve quality of life for caregivers. Please email if you have any questions. Take the Survey!


New Books We Recommend

Here are some new books you might find of interest. Enjoy discovering the ones that have meaning for you!

Reconnecting to the Source

By Ervin Laszlo

The great value of this book is not just its impassioned call to improve everyday life, or its argument for seeing reality as it really is. Both aims are very important, but overriding them is a revolution in what it means to be human. On that basis, Laszlo has hit upon the ultimate salvation of everyone on the planet, in every generation for whom being human is the prime reason for our existence. ―Deepak Chopra, MD, bestselling author of many books including You Are the Universe.

In Reconnecting to the Source, scientist, philosopher and futurist Ervin Laszlo catapults us light years beyond conventional thinking of self-help and recovery, to the very core of personal power and how to awaken it in our lives. Through true life accounts of intimate and personal journeys, Laszlo illustrates how the experiences that we sometimes discount, or are reluctant to share, are actually the clues that lead to our greatest power. I have no doubt that Reconnecting to the Source is destined to become a guide stone for the healing of the new millennium.―Gregg Braden, bestselling author of many books including The Divine Matrix

Long Walk Out of the Woods

By Adam B. Hill, MD

This book is a wake-up call, not only for the medical profession, but for our culture at large.―Eben Alexander, MD, Neurosurgeon and Author of Proof of Heaven

This book has the power to transform an already shifting culture and should be required reading for all medical trainees.―Christine Moutier, MD, Chief Medical Officer, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention

Adam Hill's suggestions for transforming the culture of medicine, which has grown so ill, are among the wisest and most insightful words on the topic I have read in a decade...[Dr.Hill] has given us an extraordinary gift of his own honesty and vulnerability. He has offered a hope that heals to those of us who have struggled with depression, addiction, anxiety, or the lonely fear that so many of us experience in the journey called becoming a doctor. By opening himself to us, he has shown us a way out of the woods. I wish every medical student, resident, and attending physician in the country had a copy of this extraordinary book.―Raymond Barfield, MD, PhD, Professor of Pediatrics and Christian Philosophy, Duke University

Science of the Soul, the Afterlife, and the Shift

By Claude Swanson

I’ve seen many good research volumes…but none with the strength, power and thoroughness [this] book contains.
--PMH Atwater, PhD, NDE Researcher and best-selling author of 10 books including The Forever Angels.

Outstanding! This is an important work that will be informative and inspirational to a vast number of people. --Jeffrey Long, MD, director of and author of God and the Afterlife.

The Forever Angels: Near-Death Experiences in Childhood and their Lifelong Impact

By P.M.H. Atwater

P.M.H. Atwater, in her new study, establishes that the full pattern of NDE aftereffects--physical, mental, emotional, spiritual--has a far greater impact on children (and adults) than anyone thought or has found before. She concludes that it takes the average child experiencer at least twenty to forty years to integrate their NDE, because they usually try to compensate, to adjust, and to ignore. This new book is a very important and valuable contribution to our knowledge and insight about NDE in very young children. --Pim van Lommel, MD, NDE researcher and author of Consciousness beyond Life

In The Forever Angels, P.M.H. Atwater tackles the particular challenges of the very youngest near-death experiencers but from an innovative angle...There is no other book like this, nor is there likely to be one. --Bruce Greyson, MD, Carlson Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences, University of Virginia

In her truly groundbreaking book, P.M.H. Atwater has boldly gone where no researcher has dared to go before--into the lives of the newly born who have had NDEs. And what she has found gives us an important new way to view NDEs--for these children, it isn’t what we thought...This is a helluva book. --Kenneth Ring, author of Lessons from the Light: What We Can Learn from the Near-Death Experience

Diamonds from Heaven: LSD and the Mind of the Universe

By Christopher Bache

Chris Bache is an intrepid psychonaut whose 20-year odyssey has yielded an extraordinary harvest of luminous insights into the deeper structure of reality and the underlying dynamics of human existence. Prepare to be amazed, energized, purged, shattered, illuminated, and reborn by penetrating to the heart of this stunning revelation for our times. --David Lorimer, program director, The Scientific and Medical Network

Chris Bache has traveled into largely uncharted realms to explore the further reaches of psychedelic experience and brought back hard-won insights into our world and our moment in history. His memoir will be a guidebook for generations to come. This is a gem of a book. --Duane Elgin, author of The Living Universe

A stunning and uplifting vision of the cosmos and humanity. This revelatory and transformative text is a genuine treasure; to read it is to open a portal into the vast and mysterious beauty of life. --G. William Barnard, PhD, Professor of Religious Studies, Southern Methodist University
