Assessment of Depression in Dementia Patients: Association of Caregiver Mood with Depression Ratings.
Teri, Linda; Truax, Paula
Gerontologist, v34 n2 p231-34 Apr 1994
Primary caregivers (n=41) of memory-impaired patients rated a standardized stimulus of depression and their actual patient. They were able to correctly identify depression in both. Further, their mood was unassociated with video ratings and only moderately associated with patient ratings. The findings support reliance on caregiver input. (Author/NB)
