Informant Questionnaire on Cognitive Decline in the Elderly (IQCODE) for the early diagnosis of dementia across a variety of healthcare settings. The Informant Questionnaire for Cognitive Decline in the Elderly (IQCODE) is a structured interview based on informant responses that is used to assess for possible dementia. IQCODE has been used for retrospective or contemporaneous assessment of cognitive decline. There is considerable interest in tests that may identify those at future risk (...) of developing dementia. Assessing a population free of dementia for the prospective development of dementia is an approach often used in studies of dementia biomarkers. In theory, questionnaire-based assessments, such as IQCODE, could be used in a similar way, assessing for dementia that is diagnosed on a later (delayed) assessment.To determine the diagnostic accuracy of IQCODE in a population free from dementia for the delayed diagnosis of dementia (test accuracy with delayed verification study design).We

“I Do It With Love”: Engagement in Caring for People With Dementia For caregivers, the impacts of caring for their loved ones with dementia at home are complex. The purpose of this study was to gain understanding of the meaning and experience of engagement for caregivers of individuals with dementia living in the community. Participants are from a culturally diverse population of low-income caregivers and care recipients in the northeastern United States. We conducted in-depth semi (...) -structured interviews with caregivers (n = 17) who were caring for parents, friends, or other relatives with dementia. We used interpretative phenomenological analysis and identified the superordinate themes of connectedness, meaningfulness, acceptance, and vigilance. We conclude that caregiver engagement is a multidimensional phenomenon, with some dimensions being contextual and specific to caregiving. It is a relational concept, referring to a committed, vigilant, and meaningful relationship
