  1. Fulltext. Expenditures in caring for patients with dementia who live at home.

    Article - En anglais



    Given the national interest in progressive dementia, we estimated expenditures incurred in caring for dementia patients who live at home.


    Primary caregivers of 264 patients from a university-based memory disorders clinic were interviewed at baseline and asked to keep service use diaries for 6 months; 141 caregivers who returned the diaries are the focus of this report.

    We examined both formal and informal services (distinguished by whether money was exchanged) and associated expenditures.
