The prevalence of organic cerebral impairment and behavioral problems within local authority homes for the elderly

, : The prevalence of organic cerebral impairment and behavioral problems within local authority homes for the elderly. Age & Ageing 8(4): 226-230

Of the residents occupying the 11 local authority homes within the catchment area of 1 Scottish district psychiatric hospital 96% were surveyed to estimate current levels of organic cerebral impairment and behavioral problems in the homes. Clear evidence of dementia was shown by 27.1% of the residents but the actual prevalence of organic cerebral impairment could be as high as 66.4%. An excessively high level of socially disruptive behavior was discovered. Apparently, local authority homes, with their present staffing levels, have to cope with large numbers of dependent and behaviorally disturbed old people. Possible solutions are outlined.
