Assistant Professor Xiaoling Xiang's new study tracks the behavior of older adults whose needs were not handled properly, leading to elevated anxiety symptoms. “Our findings reinforce the notion that needs for mental health services and community-based long-term services and supports are interconnected,” Xiang said.
Assistant Professor Xiaoling Xiang received a funding award from the Ginsberg Center for Community and Service Learning. Her project aims to foster a partnership among U-M, Jewish Family Service of Metropolitan Detroit, and the Southeast Michigan Senior Regional Collaborative to examine barriers and opportunities to implement and sustain a social work-based primary care integration intervention for vulnerable older adults in southeast Michigan.
Associate Professor Xiaoling Xiang received funding from U-M - Older Americans Independence Center Research Education Core for her project entitled "Acceptability of home care worker-supported, technology-based treatment for late-life depression in non-skilled home care." This project probes whether it is feasible to implement internet-based cognitive behavioral therapy in non-skilled home care.
Assistant Professor Xiaoling Xiang received a grant from the National Institute on Aging to investigate the feasibility and acceptability of home care aides-administered behavioral intervention for depression from the perspectives of multiple stakeholders, including older African Americans, home care aides, home care nurses and social workers, as well as home care agency leadership.
