This article presents a model of a modified form of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) that may be an effective treatment for people with anxiety and dementia. The treatment teaches people how to recognize the symptoms of anxiety and develop coping skills. The basic principles of CBT may be usefully adapted for treating anxiety in this group with less emphasis on cognitive change. The model could be used by therapists experienced in CBT who work with older people.
