Abstract

This paper identifies and describes measures of health service use and their applicability for assessing elderly persons with dementing illness and/or communication disorder. Dimensions and types of health service utilization are first discussed, followed by a discussion of special issues of validity as they apply to this population. A variety of approaches are examined, including personal interviews, proxy reports, and use of administrative and health plan records.
