Abstract

A relationship was observed between treatment of nursing home residents with donepezil and lower mortality. If the relationship was due to a direct effect of donepezil use, then this observation has implications for the socioeconomic impact of CEI therapy in those with advanced dementia in the nursing home. These implications deserve future investigation.
