Abstract

Generalized linear mixed models were used to examine longitudinal trajectories of everyday functional limitations by diagnostic stability/progression. Older adults (N = 384) were followed an average 3.6 years; participants were grouped by diagnosis at study baseline and last follow-up (normal cognition, Mild Cognitive Impairment, or dementia at each time point). At study baseline there were clear group differences; most notably among participants initially characterized as cognitively normal, those who developed Mild Cognitive Impairment or dementia over follow-up already demonstrated greater functional impairment compared with those who remained cognitively normal. Change in functional impairment progressed slowly in the early disease groups, but showed an accelerated worsening in those converting to dementia.
