Reliable Assessment of Cognitive Impairment in Dementia Patients by Family Caregivers.
Fischer, Lynn; And Others
Gerontologist, v29 n3 p333-35 Jun 1989
Caregivers (N=53) of dementia patients administered modified version of cognitive examination at home to their patients. Comparison between caregiver-administered and clinical examinations revealed high interrater reliability unaffected by caregiver age or education level. Reliable assessment of cognitive functioning by caregivers can provide clinicians with alternative method for monitoring cognitive function of dementia patients. (Author/NB)
