THE STRUCTURE OF WANDERING IN DEMENTIA

Abstract:
'Wandering' is one of the most troublesome of behavioural problems in dementia. The term 'wandering' covers many different types of behaviour. We examined the hypothesis that the different types of wandering behaviour seen in dementia form a scale using data collected on 83 elderly subjects suffering from either Alzheimer's disease or multiinfarct dementia. We reject the scaling hypothesis. Our data suggest that there are three main categories of wandering behaviour, and that one of these categories is usefully divided into four subcategories.
