Abstract

Objectives: The purposes of this study were to understand the care needs of people in the community with cognitive impairment and also the needs of their caregivers. Methods: Secondary data drawn from a study entitled "Pre-investigation for Experimental Community in Pilot Program for the Development of Long Term Care System" was analyzed. The subjects were 174 community residences with cognitive impairment and along with their caregivers (n=146). Results: (1) For subjects with cognitive impairment, the average number of impaired ADL and IADL were 2 and 5 per subject, respectively. Sleeping pattern and personal hygiene were two major problems related to psychosocial behaviors. Most of them (57.4%) were not able to stay at home alone for longer than 3 hours. (2) Seven of the psychosocial behaviors, ADL scores, IADL scores and the length of duration they were cared explained the 36.6% variation in the caregivers' burden. (3) Most of the caregivers (61.6%) believed that home was the best method of care for the subjects. Conclusion: More education and community resources regarding dementia are needed in order to assist caregivers to continue taking care of subjects at home.
