Abstract

This article describes care for behavioral symptoms related to dementia (BSRD) and identifies their potential correlates among 347 residents with dementia living in 45 assisted living facilities and nursing homes from four states. The prevalence of BSRD was associated with staff training and resident cognition, mood, mobility, and psychotropic use. Attention to staff training and depression management might improve BSRD.
