This exploratory study examined the relationship between getting lost and demographic characteristics, such as age, gender, education, marital status, cognition, and diagnosis in older adults with memory loss due to neurocognitive disorders. No significant factors account for the variation between those reporting getting lost and those who do not among a sample of 160 patients, although the travel subtask of the Cognitive Performance Test was associated with increased odds of getting lost.
