AbstractThe article reports on the increase in number of elders who are affected by dementia, a mental deterioration of organic or functional origin, in the U.S. This increase implies that there is a need for the development of treatment especially in the case of Alzheimer disease (AD). The Consent for Dementia Research Study (CDRS) is conducted to provide information about dementia, assess understanding and capacity to consent and obtain assent and informed consent.
