Yu-Tzu Wu, Sharon M Nelis, Catherine Quinn, Anthony Martyr, Ian R Jones, Christina R Victor, Martin Knapp, Catherine Henderson, John V Hindle, Roy W Jones, Michael D Kopelman, Robin G Morris, James A Pickett, Jennifer M Rusted, Jeanette M Thom, Rachael Litherland, Fiona E Matthews, Linda Clare, the IDEAL Programme team, Factors associated with self- and informant ratings of quality of life, well-being and life satisfaction in people with mild-to-moderate dementia: results from the Improving the experience of Dementia and Enhancing Active Life programme, Age and Ageing, afz177,

The authors compare self- and informant ratings of quality of life, life satisfaction and well-being. The study shows that self- and informant ratings are not equivalent in this areas. Importantly, even though this is the case, the relationships with other underlying factors are comparable. Both approaches can provide useful information for research examining factors associated with these living well measures.
