In Korea, approximately 9.5% elders over the age of 65 have dementia. Wandering in persons with dementia (PWDs) is a problem frequently encountered in acute and extended care settings, posing great management challenges to caregivers. The purpose of this study was to examine the predictive relationship of predictors [age, cognitive impairment, fall history, and dependency in physical activity of daily living (PADL) and instrumental ADL (IADL)] to wandering in Korean elders with dementia. The 59-item Revised Algase wandering scale-nursing home (RAWS-NH) was translated into Korean and established semantic equivalence. The RAWS-NH has six subscales including persistent walking (PW), specific pattern (SP), spatial disorientation (SD), eloping behavior (EB), attention shift (AS), negative outcome (NO). This study used a cross-sectional design with a non-probability dyads samples of PWDs and nursing staff solicited from local nursing homes in Korea. Data was collected by face-to-face interview by two trained research assistants. A convenience sample of 66 PWDs residing in nursing home was recruited, if they 1) were over the age of 50, 2) had medical diagnosis of dementia, 3) had Mini-Mental State Exam (MMSE) score less than 24/30, and 4) were able to walk independently. Mean age and MMSE score of PWDs were 81 years (SD=8), and 11.0 (SD=6.0), respectively. Seven simultaneous multiple regression analyses were conducted separately for six subscales and overall RAWS-NH scores. PWDs°¯ dependency in PADL was the strongest predictor for the five subscales (except NO) and overall scores of RAWS. PWDs°¯ fall history was the strongest predictor, and dependency in PADL was the second strongest predictor for NO. Dependency in IADL was significant negative predictor only for both AS and NO. Using a larger random sample, replication of this study is necessary to confirm the findings obtained.
