Investigated whether dementing adult day care clients demonstrated positive behaviors during activities with young children that they did not demonstrate during similar activities without children. Findings from 21 clients revealed that adults showed significant increases in touching and extending hands in presence of children, while also showing significant increase in holding hands when children were not present.
