They were initially divided into four groups, along two dimensions: severe vs. mild/moderate cognitive impairment, and pain-medicated vs. non-medicated for pain. Three indicators of pain were derived from the MDS: pain ...

      Although hearing impairment is among the most common chronic ailments of older persons, the problem is even greater among those in nursing homes. It is estimated that 70% to 90% of elderly residents in long-term care facilities have some degree of hearing impairment. Despite this high prevalence, significant underuse of hearing aids or other assistive devices exists, especially among those with dementia.

      OBJECTIVES: The current study assessed rates of hearing impairment and hearing aid ...
