This research elucidates the risk of institutional care and/or death of patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) or other dementia (OD) compared with noncases.

The adjusted hazard ratio (HR) of being admitted to a nursing home compared with controls was 5.44 (95% confidence interval, CI: 3.68,8.05) for AD cases and 5.08 (95% CI: 3.38, 7.63) for OD… CONTINUE READING
