The purpose of this presentation, the third of six in a symposium addressing testing of the NDB model, will be to discuss methodological issues and problems associated with measurement of personality and response to stress of the person with dementia residing in the nursing home. The resident’s personality and response to stress before memory problems began are viewed as psychosocial variables among the background factors which place the resident at risk for dementia behaviors such as vocalizations, wandering and aggression. Emphasis will be placed on methodological and implementation issues associated with use of the NEO Personality Inventory (NEOPI) and the Response to Stress Scale (RSS), the two instruments designed to measure these variables. Techniques for conducting a successful telephone interview with the resident’s significant other, who is the respondent for these tests, will be explored. Psychometric properties of the instruments and issues of reliability and validity will also be discussed.
