Retrospective Accounts of Dementia Symptoms: Are They Reliable?
LaRue, Asenath; And Others
Gerontologist, v32 n2 p240-45 Apr 1992

Retrospective accounts correlated well with initial reports but psychiatric symptoms were underreported in retrospective accounts. Spouses tended to report lower levels of psychiatric symptoms than did younger relatives. (Author)
