This study is part of a larger project, exploring how to deploy the Internet as a tool to assist home care for people with Alzheimer's disease. This study followed a qualitative paradigm, investigating how the caregivers obtain online information resources for their regular online activities. The participants had four approaches to seek resources for their regular online activities and they usually started the information search with search engines like Yahoo or Google or with their preferred resources. The results provide a base in understanding caregivers' Internet behavior and provides guidance for improving Internet/web design and increasing use of websites.
