A new study from Utah State University, published in January in The American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, suggests that the a caregiver’s actions and attitudes may slow the onset of dementia.

The study, led by Utah State professor JoAnn Tschanz, shows that how a caregiver approaches the challenges of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia can promote higher functioning among those who suffer.

“We found there is tremendous individual variability in how fast people decline,” Tschanz said. “We want to know what impacts that decline in mental health.”
