Abstract

Given the number of individuals with dementia who reside in nursing homes and residential care/assisted living settings, and the importance of the quality of their care, it is desirable that methods be available for them to rate their care. This study demonstrates that even residents with severe dementia can reliably and validly report on care using the Resident Report of Care. Findings also indicate that care related to communication is important to other quality-of-care domains, and that care related to activities warrants special attention owing to its lowest rating and relationship with resident quality of life.
