The STIM-EHPAD study (for stimulation in nursing home) aims to evaluate the short and medium term effectiveness of staff education as a non-pharmacological intervention to manage apathy in older people with a diagnosis of dementia.
- Primary efficacy criteria: Apathy Inventory clinician score changes
- Secondary efficacy criteria: Apathy Inventory patient and caregiver version changes, Observation scale changes, frequency and severity of the other BPSD using the NPI, qualitative analysis of the nursing home staff behavioural changes
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Health Services Research

In the present proposal, we hypothesize that specifically targeting pneumonia events with preventive interventions in the French EHPAD (Etablissements d'Hébergement pour Personnes Agées ...
Malnutrition particularly affects people who delegate the preparation of their meals with 46% of persons living at home and using a meals-on-wheels service, or those in old people's homes ...
The purpose of this study is to see if an intense two-week long cognitive training program helps the thinking ability of adults with very mild Alzheimer Disease. We anticipate that scores ...
This study is a double blind, sham-controlled clinical trial aiming to compare the long-term effects of stimulation in Alzheimer's Disease (AD). Sixty early AD patients will take part in a...
This type of study can have an impact on public health policy and help improve the management of pain in people with EHPAD; Propose better use of drug treatments and non-pharmacological me...
Advance care planning (ACP) is crucial for quality end-of-life care for patients with Alzheimer's disease. However, limited evidence is available about ACP among ethnic minorities, particularly in the...
Neuroimaging modalities can measure different aspects of the disease process in Alzheimer's disease, although the relationship between these modalities is unclear.
Exploring the role of Alzheimer's disease (AD) implicated pathways in the predementia phase may provide new insight for preventive and clinical trials targeting disease specific pathways.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) acquisition/processing techniques assess brain volumes to explore neurodegeneration in Alzheimer's disease (AD).
A growing body of evidence suggests that healthy elderly individuals and patients with Alzheimer's disease retain an important potential for neuroplasticity. This review summarizes studies investigati...
Abnormal structures located chiefly in distal dendrites and, along with NEUROFIBRILLARY TANGLES and SENILE PLAQUES, constitute the three morphological hallmarks of ALZHEIMER DISEASE. Neuropil threads are made up of straight and paired helical filaments which consist of abnormally phosphorylated microtubule-associated tau proteins. It has been suggested that the threads have a major role in the cognitive impairment seen in Alzheimer disease.
Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent or treat ALZHEIMER DISEASE.
A progressive form of dementia characterized by the global loss of language abilities and initial preservation of other cognitive functions. Fluent and nonfluent subtypes have been described. Eventually a pattern of global cognitive dysfunction, similar to ALZHEIMER DISEASE, emerges. Pathologically, there are no Alzheimer or PICK DISEASE like changes, however, spongiform changes of cortical layers II and III are present in the TEMPORAL LOBE and FRONTAL LOBE.

A carbamate-derived reversible CHOLINESTERASE INHIBITOR that is selective for the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM and is used for the treatment of DEMENTIA in ALZHEIMER DISEASE and PARKINSON DISEASE.
A biochemical phenomenon in which misfolded proteins aggregate either intra- or extracellularly. Triggered by factors such as MUTATION, POST-TRANSLATIONAL MODIFICATIONS, and environmental stress, it is generally associated with ALZHEIMER DISEASE; PARKINSON DISEASE; HUNTINGTON DISEASE; and TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS.
Dementia describes a range of symptoms of cognitive decline. For example memory loss, problems with reasoning and communication skills, and a reduction in a person's abilities and skills in carrying out daily activities. There are about 820,000 peo...
