Introduction: The Attitudes to Aging Questionnaire (AAQ) was developed to measure attitudes toward the aging process as a personal experience from the perspective of older people. The present study aimed to validate the French version of the AAQ. Participants and methods: This study examined factor structure, acceptability, reliability and validity of the AAQ’s French version in 238 Belgian adults aged 60 years or older. In addition, participants provided information on demographics, self-perception of their mental and physical health (single items), quality of life (WHOQOL-OLD) and social desirability (DS-36). Results: Exploratory Factor Analysis produced a three-factor solution accounting for 36.9% of the variance. No floor or ceiling effects were found. The internal consistency, measured by Cronbach’s alpha coefficients for the AAQ subscales were 0.62 (Physical Change), 0.74 (Psychological Growth), and 0.75 (Psychosocial Loss). A priori expected associations were found between AAQ subscales, self-reported health and quality of life, indicating good convergent validity. The scale also showed a good ability to discriminate between people with lower and higher education levels, supporting adequate known-groups validity. Finally, we confirmed the need to control for social desirability biases when assessing self-reported attitudes toward one’s own aging. Conclusion: The data support the usefulness of the French version of the AAQ for the assessment of attitudes toward their own aging in older people. [less ▲]

Background: Over the past 20 years, many researchers have worked in developing various methods for measuring quality of life (QoL) of people with dementia. The aim of this review is to develop the conceptual frameworks of the dementia-specific QoL instruments, to identify their evolution over time and to provide elements of reflection on the QoL concept in dementia and its evaluation. Method: An electronic search was conducted on PsycINFO and MEDLINE databases, from January 1985 to June 2015 using a combination of key words that include quality of life, dementia and review. Result: The analysis of the conceptual frameworks of the eighteen selected dementia-specific QoL tools shows a great diversity in: (1) the QoL definitions (e.g. health-related QoL definitions, QoL definitions based on Lawton’s work or similar to this latter); (2) the theoretical QoL models (e.g. Lawton’ work and modified Lawton, adaptation, personhood); (3) the domains and dimensions; (4) the way to construct the instrument (e.g. development based on literature, opinion of the experts) and (5) the items’ formulation (e.g. use of criterion of intensity or frequency). Conclusion: There are different conceptual frameworks in the dementia-specific QoL measures with improvements over time (e.g. inclusion of interesting concepts such as adaptation, taking into account the views of patients themselves). Each of the conceptual parameters (definitions, models, domains and dimensions) is discussed to identify the scales that are conceptually the strongest. Through their review, recommendations for future instrument refinement and development are discussed and a new QoL definition is proposed. [less ▲]

It is widely recognized that living day to day with a family member with Alzheimer's disease is a difficult situation for the relatives. Burden generated by this disease can lead to psychological and physical exhaustion for the caregiver, called burnout. Several health studies have shown that caregivers are a population at risk, particularly in terms of depressive symptoms (Covinsky et al., 2003), psychological distress (Pinquart and Sörensen, 2003) or health problems (Schulz et al., 1997). They also present a higher risk of mortality than noncaregivers (Schulz and Beach, 1999). Given these results, we understand the major interest of establishing support program to offer therapeutic monitoring for people caring for a relative with dementia. We present Mrs C.G’s case study, who followed the counselling program developed by Adam et al. (2009). This program aims to meet the specific demands of the caregiver by providing informative elements about the disease, relevant advice based on cognitive functioning through the specific profile of the patient and real daily challenges experienced by the caregiver. The “stress management approach” proposed by Zarit et al. (1987) induces the use of coping strategies focused on problem solving. The comparison between pre and post-intervention brings us positive elements, particularly in enhancement of the caregiver’s quality of life, of his sense of competence and efficiency in managing the disease on a daily basis. About burnout, which was the primary focus this intervention, we find that emotional exhaustion tends to decrease during the counselling sessions. A particularly important finding relates to family changes made throughout the therapy, questioning the organization of family dynamics. These positive results show the importance of developing support programs for caregivers adapted to their needs. Moreover, training therapists for this purpose seems essential because it requires a comprehensive and holistic clinical approach, given the neuropsychological, cognitive behavioural and systemic components involved.

Effectuée au niveau de 32 institutions, l’enquête FIH-ULg a permis de récolter des informations par rapport à 1020 résidents et 1412 professionnels. En vue d’évaluer au mieux le niveau de qualité de vie des résidents (et des facteurs l’influençant), nous avions pris le parti de prendre en considération, dans la mesure du possible, l’avis d’au moins deux professionnels pour un même résident. Ceci nous a permis d’analyser les données à deux niveaux : (1) en privilégiant un score moyen de qualité de vie pour chaque résident (score tenant compte de l’avis des deux ou trois professionnels ayant évalué le niveau de qualité de vie d’un même résident) et (2) en regardant la différence de perception de qualité de vie pouvant exister entre les différents professionnels évaluant un même résident. En vue de mieux comprendre ce qui fait que la qualité de vie n’est pas similaire pour tous les résidents, nous avons mis en lien le niveau de qualité de vie des résidents avec toute une série de facteurs susceptibles de l’influencer, à savoir des facteurs liés (1) au résident lui-même (âge, sexe, diagnostic, niveau de dépendance, etc.), (2) à son contexte de vie (MR ou MRS, unité spécifique ou non, chambre individuelle ou collective, etc.), (3) aux professionnels évaluant la qualité de vie des résidents (âge, sexe, profession, etc., mais aussi vision du vieillissement et des pathologies démentielles) et (4) à la relation existant entre ces professionnels et les résidents (nature, fréquence et qualité des contacts).
