Functional Disability in Alzheimer Disease: A Validation Study of the Brazilian Version of the Disability Assessment for Dementia (DAD-Br)

Methods: The DAD was applied to caregivers of 89 patients with probable Alzheimer disease (AD) and to 40 elderly individuals without cognitive impairment (controls).
