AbstractThe purpose of this study was to use routinely collected resident assessment data from a single site to evaluate the impact of COVID-19 restrictions on cognition, physical function and behavioral symptoms of residents with dementia. Specifically, it was hypothesized that controlling for age and sex, there would be a decline in cognition and function and an increase in behavioral symptoms at 12 months post implementation of COVID-19 restrictions. Twelve residents from a single memory care site with required Resident Assessments completed prior to and 12 month post initiation of the pandemic and associated quarantines were included. No significant change was noted in function or behavioral symptoms but there was a statistically significant decline in cognition over the 12 month period. Although this study did not support our hypothesis, the findings supported some prior research also noting little significant change among the majority of individuals over the course of the pandemic regardless of regulations.
