Karen Rose earned her BSN from Shenandoah University in Winchester, VA, her MSN in medical-surgical nursing at VCU, and a PhD in nursing from UVA. Dr. Rose completed a Claire M. Fagin post-doctoral fellowship focused on sleep in persons with dementia through the John A. Hartford Foundation. She was inducted as a Fellow in the American Academy of Nursing in 2013, and a Fellow of the Gerontological Society of America in 2014.
Dr. Rose focuses her program of research in supporting family caregivers of persons with dementia as these caregivers strive to maintain their loved one in their home environments for as long as possible. As such, she conducts research in those distressing symptoms in dementia, namely, sleep disturbances, agitation, and urinary incontinence, that family caregivers perceive as being burdensome and are oftentimes the “tipping points” for seeking institutional care. She also conducts research in family quality of life in dementia and in transitional care for older adults. Dr. Rose has received local, state, foundation, and federal extramural funding for her program of research.
