État des lieux des mesures de protection juridique dans la démence : étude observationnelle transversale descriptive de 334 résidents d’EHPAD des Landes et du Lot-et-Garonne

Abstract : Background: in France, dementia is one of the main causes of disability and therefore an increasingly important public health issue. Legal protection measures are one of the means of compensating for this induced vulnerability. The literature dealing with legal protection mesures for dementia is poor. Our main objective was to estimate the proportion of EHPAD residents benefiting from a legal protection measure. Our secondary objective was to identify the medico-social factors influencing legal protection. Methods: we conducted a multicentre descriptive cross-sectional observational study. 334 dementia residents were included from February to August 2020 in 12 randomly selected EHPADs in the Landes and Lot-et Garonne regions. Then, for the main objective 30 additional subjects were included. Analyses were performed using the online statistical testing site BiostaTGV. Results: 34.6% (n=126, 95% CI: 29.7; 39.5) of dementia residents were legally protected. Guardianship was the most frequent measure (71.4%). The accompanying measures were non-existent. Our study suggests that those protected would be statistically significantly younger, more likely to come from suburban areas and more isolated. The etiological diagnosis of dementia would also be statistically more represented among the protected residents. There were no other significant differences. Conclusion: over a third of the demented residents of EHPAD in the Landes and Lot-et-Garonne are under legal protection. The existence of an entourage seems to have a strong influence on the lack of legal protection, but is not systematically monitored, hence the need to deepen our knowledge of this population.
