Abstract The article presents a study on the effectiveness of community-based occupational therapy on the daily functioning of people with dementia in Australia. The study found that participants receiving the therapy had better outcomes than those who did not. In addition, caregivers for this therapy achieved higher competence scores than those in a control group. The study suggests outcome measures that may be sensitive and adaptable enough for clinical use for dementia patients and their caregivers.
