Background: The identification and understanding of the discrepancy between caregivers’ reports of people with dementia’s (PwD) performance of activities of daily living (ADLs) and observed performance, could clarify what kind of support a PwD effectively needs when completing tasks. Strategies used by caregivers have not been included in the investigation of this discrepancy.
Results: Poor level of agreement between observed and reported ADL performance [k= -0.025 (95%CI -0.123 – 0.073)] was identified, with most caregivers underestimating ADL performance.
Conclusions: Encouragement style could be advised for caregivers who underestimate ADL performance, while active management style for those who overestimate it. Findings have scope to increase caregivers’ abilities to support PwD activity engagement in daily life.
