Elders with Dementia as Witnesses to Emotional Events

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

People with dementia may retain the ability to recall emotional events. To date, no research has identified characteristics of demented persons who can give reliable accounts of emotional experiences. This study of a population of people with dementia and a control group employed structured interviews to determine the elders’ reliability in recalling recent autobiographical events. Accuracy of memories was independently verified by non-demented informants, usually a family caregiver. The study identified and described a subset of people with dementia who accurately remembered their emotional experiences. This research will inform those who investigate and prosecute elder mistreatment cases.
