The goal of this study is to examine the phenomenon of getting lost behavior in dementia by validating a newly developed and modified instrument-the Everyday Spatial Questionnaire, patient version (ESQ-1) among participants with early Alzheimer's disease in Taiwan. This study is based on the conceptual framework of problem-solving and executive functions that are supported by the capacity of directed attention. With a cross-sectional design, this study recruits a convenient sample, consisting of one hundred and sixteen participants at a memory clinic of a veteran hospital in northern Taiwan. The ESQ-1 is examined for its internal consistency, test-retest reliability, inter-rater reliability, and exploratory factor analysis. Other measurements include the Cognitive Abilities Screening Instrument (CASI), the Clinical Dementia Rating Scale (CDR), the Geriatric Depression Scale-Short Form (CDG-S), and laboratory tests. Findings show that the Chinese modified ESQ-1 is a reliable and valid instrument for measuring getting lost behavior in Taiwan. The internal consistency alpha=.73; test-retest reliability r=.77, p < .01; and the five-factor solution explains about 55% of the score variance. A family caregiver version of the ESQ (ESQ-F) is also developed and the discrepancy between the results of the ESQ-P and ESQ-F is discussed.
