This study describes the extent of verbal and/or physical aggression as reported by caregivers and correlates of each type of aggression against the demented care recipient. The extent of verbal aggression alone was 30.2% and of physical aggression, 10.7%. Verbal and physical aggression were associated with sharing the same household with the care recipient, caring for a male and caring for an elderly person more severely impaired in cognitive functioning and more dependent in Instrumental Activities of Daily Living. Verbal aggression was also associated with proving more care, and physical aggression with caring for a spouse and more psychological complaints of the caregiver. Accordingly, physical aggression does not seem to be a mere extension of verbal aggression, and different intervention strategies may be required for verbally and physically aggressive caregivers.
