dc.description.abstractThere is no "gold standard" to measure the QOL in older persons with dementia. For those requiring increased care, nursing homes may offer some benefit, including more frequent physician assessment and treatment of pain and depression, compared with assisted living/residential care facilities. However, evidence suggests a gradual decline in average functioning in persons with dementia, regardless of living situation. (Strength of Recommendation: B; based on cohort studies).eng
