Older People with Dementia Have Reduced Daily-Life Activity and Impaired Daily-Life Gait When Compared to Age-Sex Matched Controls

The aim of the study was to assess differences in daily-life activity levels and gait characteristics between community-dwelling older people with mild to moderate dementia (n = 45; mean age 81±6 years, 42% female) and age-sex matched (1:2) cognitively-healthy controls (n = 90).
