Using Lawton's well-developed model of quality of life (QoL) in persons with dementia (PWD), an-observer rated measure of psychological well being (Psychological Well-Being in Cognitively-Impaired Persons: PWB-CIP) was developed and tested as PWD progressed through the disease stages. Using a longitudinal, prospective design, an instrument was developed to assess psychological well-being in PWD with measures at 6-month intervals for 4 years, beginning within the first year following the dementia diagnosis. A total of 96 PWD were entered into the study, with 48 (50%) completing the study. Additional measures include depression, personality, functional behaviors, and mental status. Two separate analyses were conducted: one using baseline data and the second using data obtained at the 18-month assessment. For the baseline data, the original 16-item scale was reduced to 12 items, with mean item ratings varying between 2.73 and 3.76 (range of 1 to 4) following factor analysis. Factor analysis revealed three factors, with Eigen values ranging from 1.37 to 3.52, with the three factors explaining 32%, 14.5%, and 12% variance in scores. The three factors represent negative behaviors; positive, interactive behaviors; and non-verbal negative responses (frightened facial expression). Reliability for the three subscales was supported with Cronbach's alphas ranging from .69 to .75 and a total scale alpha of .76. Validity was supported through significant correlations in the expected direction with depression (-.46), productive behaviors (.56), mental status (.33), and personality factors (-.41 for hostility to .56 for extroversion). Findings supporting the instrument's psychometric properties were similar for data obtained at the 18-month assessment, providing a useful indicator of psychological well-being at various stages of dementia.
