Abstract

Date Presented 4/8/2016

The aim of this study is to describe the family quality of life (FQOL) of people with dementia using a recently modified FQOL survey. The results suggest occupational therapists should explore ways to enhance FQOL by shifting from medical to community-based models of intervention.
