Background: Dementia imposes a heavy burden on health and social care systems as well as on family caregivers who provide a substantial portion of the care. Interventions that effectively support caregivers may prevent or delay patient institutionalization and hence be cost-effective. However, evidence about the cost-effectiveness of such interventions is scarce. The aim of this […]

Effectiveness of case management among older adults with early symptoms of dementia and their primary informal caregivers: a randomized clinical trial

However, diagnosing dementia often occurs late in the disease. This means that a significant number of patients with early symptoms of dementia and their informal caregivers may lack […]

Navigation for people with mild dementia

Community dwelling is a problem for people with dementia. Can GPS route navigation support on a mobile device provide a solution? In a small scale exploratory research with this target group we studied the effects of two different types of audio instructions and assessed the pedestrian safety while operating the device. Methodological issues that limited […]

Long-term safety of rivastigmine in parkinson disease dementia: an open-label, randomized study

The aim of this study was to examine the effects of a walking intervention on cognition in older people with dementia.; Methods: 97 older nursing home residents with moderate dementia (mean age 85.4 years; 79 female participants; mean Mini-Mental State Examination […]

Hand motor activity, cognition, mood, and the rest-activity rhythm in dementia: a clustered RCT

Background: Physical activity such as walking may exert a positive impact on cognition and behaviour in older persons with dementia, but due to the frailty of the population it may be worthwhile to consider other motor activities as well.; Objective: Examining the effects of hand motor activity on cognition, mood and the rest-activity rhythm in […]

The effect of souvenaid on functional brain network organisation in patients with mild Alzheimer’s disease: a randomised controlled study
