Hammel, Marc; And Others
Gerontologist, v30 n2 p206-11 Apr 1990
Studied frequency, nature, context, and caregivers' reactions to aggressive behavior in 213 demented patients. Found aggression in 57.2 percent of patients and 10.6 percent of caregivers. Predictors of patient aggression were greater frequency of behavior and memory problems, premorbid aggression, and more troubled premorbid social relationship between patient and caregiver. Patient aggression predicted decision to discontinue home care. (Author/NB)
