Awareness of Deficit in Alzheimer's Disease: Relation to Caregiver Burden.
Seltzer, Benjamin; And Others
Gerontologist, v37 n1 p20-24 Feb 1997
Analyzes caregiver burden in relation to Alzheimer patients' awareness of their own deficits. Results suggest that caregiver burden was associated with impaired patient awareness of memory deficit independent of disease stage and dementia severity, suggesting that impaired awareness may be an important mediator of caregiver burden.
