Are nursing home residents with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD) receive antipyschotic medications more often than residents with other severe mental illnesses? What disparities in treatment through antipsychotic medications are present in nursing homes? We explore the relationships between race, payment, dementia, serious mental illness, and ADRD.
