Ethics approval and consent to participate
: The present study has been approved by Western University Health Science Research Ethics Board (Protocol ID: 105234) and all individuals will sign a consent form prior to participation. The study coordinator will review the letter of information, answer questions, and obtain consent from participant and caregiver/next of kin or power of attorney (POA) at the screening visit. Because the ability to consent can be difficult to assess and can change over time, written consent will be obtained from both participants with dementia and caregiver/next of kin or POA to ensure the rights of participants who may have deficits in comprehension or decision making.
