Dementia Worry

Short Description: Dementia worry may affect a range of important behaviours, such as how people interpret evidence of their own or others’age-related cognitive changes, how they interact with people with dementia, how they anticipate and plan for their future, how they engage in screening and prevention behaviours and how they exploit healthcare resources.

Methodological Details: Four self-report items, namely how concerned participants are about getting a form of dementia, their perception of risk of dementia, whether they believe memory degradation to be preventable and whether they believe that a diagnosis of dementia would ruin their life.
