OBJECTIVES: Among the psychosocial interventions intended to reduce the behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD), doll therapy (DT) is increasingly used in clinical practice. Few studies on DT have been based on empirical data obtained with an adequate procedure; however, none have assessed its efficacy using an active control group, and the scales used to assess changes in BPSD are usually unreliable. The aim of the present study was to measure the impact of DT on people with severe dementia with a reliable, commonly used scale for assessing their BPSD, and the related distress in formal caregivers...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Neuropsychiatric symptoms (NPS) in dementia pose great challenges for residents and staff in nursing homes. The Targeted Interdisciplinary Model for Evaluation and Treatment of Neuropsychiatric Symptoms (TIME) has recently in a randomized controlled trial demonstrated reductions in NPS. We explored the participating staff's experiences with the model and how it meets the challenges when dealing with the complexity of NPS. METHODS: Three to six months after the end of the intervention, we interviewed 32 of the caregivers, leaders, and physicians participating in the trial, in five focus groups...

OBJECTIVES: A large descriptive cross-sectional population-based prevalence study as well as a retrospective incidence study were undertaken to ascertain the frequency of Parkinson's Disease (PD) and other types of degenerative and non-degenerative parkinsonism in the Canton of Geneva, Switzerland. METHODS: An extensive case-finding approach including records from public hospitals, private neurologists and nursing homes was utilized. All patients with a diagnosis of parkinsonism established between 2003 and 2012 were included...

BACKGROUND: Life in rural and urban areas differs in regard to social support and health care. Our aim was to examine the association between nursing home placement and survival of patients with dementia living in urban vs. rural areas. METHODS: We performed a longitudinal cohort study of patients with dementia at time of diagnosis (n = 58 154) and at first follow-up (n = 21 522) including patients registered from 2007 through 2014 in the Swedish Dementia Registry (SveDem)...

BACKGROUND: Individuals suffering from dementia and residing in nursing homes often feel lonely and bored. This study examined the engagement and mood of people with dementia in group activities, and how personal characteristics, such as cognitive function, may impact on an individual's responses to group activities. METHODS: The study included 102 participants, who took part in group activities while their mood and engagement levels were observed. Participants were invited to attend 10 different types of group activities, each of which was offered twice...

BACKGROUND: Several instruments are available to assess knowledge about hospice care, but none specifically address knowledge about home hospice for persons with Alzheimer's disease (AD). AIM: To develop and validate the Alzheimer's Disease Home Hospice Knowledge Scale (AD-HHK-S). METHODS: A total of 107 Israeli family caregivers of persons with dementia (mean age=71.2; 73% female) participated in the study. RESULTS: The AD-HHK-S included 28 true/false items assessing 3 areas of knowledge: knowledge about hospice, knowledge about home hospice, and knowledge about home hospice for AD...

Introduction: Despite availability of effective care strategies for dementia, most health care systems are not yet organized or equipped to provide comprehensive family-centered dementia care management. Maximizing Independence at Home-Plus is a promising new model of dementia care coordination being tested in the U.S. through a Health Care Innovation Award funded by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services that may serve as a model to address these delivery gaps, improve outcomes, and lower costs...

BACKGROUND: Antipsychotic agents are often used to treat neuropsychiatric symptoms (NPS) in people with dementia although there is uncertainty about the effectiveness of their long-term use for this indication and concern that they may cause harm, including higher mortality. When behavioural strategies have failed and treatment with antipsychotic drugs is instituted, regular attempts to withdraw them have been recommended in guidelines. Physicians, nurses and families of older people with dementia may be reluctant to stop antipsychotics, fearing deterioration of NPS...

BACKGROUND: There is currently no robust long-term data on costs of treating patients with Parkinson's disease. The objective of this study was to report levels of health care utilization and associated costs in the 10 years after diagnosis among PD patients in the United Kingdom. METHODS: We undertook a retrospective population-based cohort study using linked data from the UK Clinical Practice Research Datalink and Hospital Episode Statistics databases. Total health care costs of PD patients were compared with those of a control group of patients without PD selected using 1:1 propensity score matching based on age, sex, and comorbidity...

AIM: To explore the experience and the preparedness of family carers in their caregiving role as best interest decision-makers of a relative living with advanced dementia. BACKGROUND: The prevalence of dementia is a global issue. The role of being a carer of a relative living with dementia does not necessarily lessen once they are admitted to a nursing home. Best interest decision-making including end-of-life care decisions need to be made and reaching these choices can be challenging...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Patients colonized with toxinogenic strains of Clostridium difficile have an increased risk of subsequent infection. Given the potential role of the gut microbiome in increasing the risk of C. difficile colonization, we assessed the diversity and composition of the gut microbiota among long-term care facility (LTCF) residents with advanced dementia colonized with C. difficile. DESIGN: Retrospective analysis of rectal samples collected during a prospective observational study...

BACKGROUND: Polypharmacy (use of ≥5 different medications) and potentially inappropriate medication (PIM) are well-known risk factors for numerous negative health outcomes. However, the use of polypharmacy and PIM in people with dementia is not well-described. OBJECTIVE: To examine the prevalence of polypharmacy and PIM in older people with and without dementia in a nationwide population. METHODS: Cross-sectional study of the Danish population aged ≥65 in 2014 (n = 1,032,120) based on register data, including information on diagnoses and dispensed prescriptions...

BACKGROUND: The nursing community in the Nordic countries has become multicultural because of migration from European, Asian and African countries. In Norway, minority health care providers are recruited in to nursing homes which have become multicultural workplaces. They overcome challenges such as language and strangeness but as a group they are vulnerable and exposed to many challenges. PURPOSE: The aim is to explore minority healthcare providers, trained nurses and nurses' assistants, and their experiences of challenges when working in a multicultural team in a Norwegian context...

BACKGROUND/RATIONALE: This study tested the psychometric properties of the Quality of Life in Late-Stage Dementia (QUALID) Scale using Rasch analysis. The QUALID includes 11 items with a 5-point response scale. Scores range from 11 to 55, and lower scores indicate higher quality of life (QoL). METHODS: Baseline data from a randomized clinical trial including 137 residents from 14 nursing homes were used. Psychometric testing included item mapping, evaluation of response categories, item reliability, construct validity based on INFIT and OUTFIT statistics, and convergent validity based on correlations between QoL and pain, agitation, depression, and function...
