Clinical Trials Provide Quality Care for Seniors 29. March 2011 0 Senior Caregiving, Caregiving Issues (0) Drug Clinical Trials for Alzheimer's Disease provide seniors with this challenging disease to be part of a research team investigating the performance of new drugs. By participating in a clinical trial, seniors receive ongoing monitoring of their health and are able to interact with a leading team of doctors. Remember, every drug currently on the market was once being studied in a clinical trial. Participation in clinical trials is free and sometimes a stipend for expenses and participation is paid to the senior and their caregivers. Find clinical trials near you through the National Institute of Health's website.
