“…36 Apathy might be overlooked by caregivers and underestimated by family members because patients become indifferent due to a lack of motivation and decreased motor activity, but most caregivers were able to identify it. 37 Apathic behavior is one of the neuropsychiatric symptoms that causes distress for those who care for an elderly individual with dementia due to the greater impairment it imposes on patients, leading caregivers to experience frustration. [36][37][38] The average number of neuropsychiatric symptoms presented by the elderly individuals with dementia, as reported by the caregivers, was 4.5 symptoms.…”
