Brief Summary:
Resident-to-resident elder mistreatment (R-REM) is a significant problem in long-term services and support settings (LTSS), and likely to cause physical and or psychological distress. The proposed project tests an intervention developed for use by LTSS staff. As such, it represents an important step in the process of developing approaches for ameliorating and preventing R-REM in assisted living residences which house residents with dementia and related behavioral disorders, and is thus likely to have significant public health impact.
