The Effects on Aromatherapy and Foot Reflex Massage on the
Cognition, Anxiety, Aggressive Behavior and Wandering Behavior

of Elderly with Dementia

Abstract This study aims to evaluate the effects of aromatherapy and a foot reflex massage program on the
cognition, anxiety, aggressive behavior, and wandering behavior of elderly with dementia. The research design
was a non-equivalent control group, quasi-experimental study where 43 subjects were divided into two groups.
Aromatherapy and foot reflex massage was administered to the experimental group (N=21), and no treatment
was administered to the control group (N=22). The data was analyzed using the χ2-test, t-test, while the
repeated measures of ANOVA were utilized with the SPSS/Win 18.0 program. The experimental group did not
show significant differences in cognitive function; however, it showed significant differences in anxiety,
aggressive behavior, and wandering behavior in relation to the control group. Thus this research suggests
aromatherapy and a foot reflex massage program as nursing intervention to improve the quality of life of

elderly with dementia.
