For example, in the memory section, participants were asked about Indian politicians and movie actors. "Accounting for cultural differences and linguistic characteristics of different populations is crucial for the development of a common instrument to diagnose dementia," noted Eneida Mioshi, professor of dementia care research at UEA's School of Health Sciences.view more

Refusals of care in dementia are common and can create difficult situations for caregivers. Little is known about the best way to manage them.
This study aimed to explore the impact of carer stressors (neuropsychiatric symptoms of dementia, level of independence in activities of daily living, hours of caring per week), demographic factors (carer age, relationship with the person with dementia, dementia type, dementia severity, number of years since diagnosis and cohabitation status) and psychological inflexibility on depression and anxiety in family carers of people with dementia.
To evaluate the ability of the FTD Rating Scale (FTD-FRS) to detect functional and behavioral changes in patients diagnosed with the behavioral variant of FTD (bvFTD), primary progressive aphasia (PPA), and Alzheimer disease (AD) after 12 months of the initial evaluation, compared to the Clinical Dementia Rating scale−frontotemporal lobar degeneration (CDR-FTLD) and the original Clinical Dementia Rating scale (CDR).
This meta-analysis aimed to (1) quantitatively synthesize evidence of factors related to the quality of life (QoL) of family carers of people with dementia and (2) explore moderating factors that may influence the strength of the relationship between such potential predictive factors and carer QoL.
The impact of several dementia syndromes on activities of daily living (ADLs) has been well documented, but no study has yet investigated functional ability in posterior cortical atrophy (PCA). The primarily visual nature of deficits in this condition is likely to have a pronounced impact on ADLs.
