Abstract

Background. Verbal and physical aggression are common behavior problems among nursing home residents with dementia, Depression among nursing home residents is also a common but underdiagnosed disorder.,Method. Data collected on 1101 residents with dementia, newly admitted to a sample of 59 nursing homes across Maryland, were analyzed to determine ifthen was a relationship between depression and physical and verbal aggression. Results. Residents with dementia who manifested physical or verbal aggression had a higher prevalence of depression than those without such behaviors(p<0.05). Conclusions. Our findings suggest that nursing home residents with aggressive behaviors should be screened for depression and treated. Copyright (C) 2001 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
