Experimental: Care-resistant mouth care
These nursing home residents with dementia receive mouth care from study personnel who use strategies to reduce care-resistant behavior while providing evidence-based mouth care.
Behavioral: Managing Oral Hygiene Using Threat Reduction (MOUTh )
The intervention combines best mouth care practices with a constellation of behavioral techniques that reduce threat perception and thereby prevent or de-escalate care-resistant behavior.
Active Comparator: Evidence Base Mouth Care
Nursing home residents with dementia received mouth care from study personnel who were trained in evidence-based mouth care only.
Procedure: Evidence-based mouth care
Mouth care tailored to the needs of older adults, including care of dentures.
- Reduction in care-resistant behavior [ Time Frame: 5 weeks ]Care-resistant behavior will be measured using a refinement of the Resistiveness to Care Scale, which was developed specifically for use with persons with dementia.
- Oral health [ Time Frame: 5 weeks ]The oral health will be measured as the total score obtained from the Oral Health Assessment Tool.
