Abstract

The aim of this pilot study was to determine whether residential respite care is used because of disruptive behaviour displayed by older people. The specific objectives were to I) characterise older people being admitted for residential respite care, 2) obtain a
preliminary estimate of the proportion of older people
in residential respite cafe because of disruptive behaviour, and, 3) examine the relationship between
residential respite care and disruptive hehaviour. A
quantitative approach using a cross-sectional survey was employed. The respite recipients were 35 older people with a mean age of 81.5 years (range 67-96 years). The respite recipients had been admitted for residential respite care to aged care hostels and nursing homes in a provincial city and its surrounding rural area. Nurses rated disruptive behaviour using the Dementia Behavior Disturbance Scale (DBDS). Additional reliability data for the DBDS are provided.
The study found that the largest specific group of
residential respite care users were widows (31.4%) who
lived alone in their own home. The reason for over half
(51.4%) of the residential respite admissions was to give a carer a 'break' from the older person. Although a large proportion (80%) of respite recipients were rated as having disruptive behaviour, the proportion of admissions because of disruptive behaviour was much less (28.6%). People with dementia (37.1 %) scored significantly higher than people without dementia on the DBDS [F (1,33)=15.57, p<O.OOl]. Older people with dementia were prescribed a greater number of psychotropic medications. It is concluded that despite
residential respite care being offered primarily to assist
with carer burden it is not being used mainly for older
people whose behaviour is problematic for the carers.
