No Intervention: control group
The control group will receive usual care
Experimental: experimental group
The experimental group will receive 20 minute white noise of the ocean and the sound of running water at 16:00 to 17:00 for four weeks periods.
Other: White noise
White noise is a simple, convenient, non-invasive and effective intervention. it sounds like the sound of running water, ocean or fan operation sounds. In this study, Subjects will receive 20 minute white noise of the ocean and the sound of running water at 16:00 to 17:00 for four weeks periods.
- Improve the agitation behavior [ Time Frame: Change from baseline in agitation behavior at 1 months ]Agitation behavior will be assessed by Cohen-Mansfield Agitation Inventory (CMAI) including physically nonaggressive behavior (PNAB), physically aggressive behavior (PAGB), verbally nonaggressive behavior (VNAB) and verbally aggressive behavior (VAGB) at two different times: (1) baseline data :before white noise intervention, (2) outcome data: at four weeks post-test.
- Improve the cortisol homeostasis [ Time Frame: Change from baseline in saliva cortisol at 1 months ]Cortisol concentrations will be measured at two different times: (1)baseline data: before white noise intervention, (2) outcome data: at four weeks post-test.
- Improve quality of care [ Time Frame: Change from baseline in quality of care at 1 months ]Quality of care will be assessed by ease-of-care inventory at at two different times: (1) baseline data :before white noise intervention, (2) outcome data: at four weeks post-test.
- Basic attribute data [ Time Frame: Baseline ]Barthel Index, amount of activity, date in nursing home and medication situation.
