CPI - Care Plan Information

Understanding Dementia

Dementia is a symptom of many diseases that affect the elderly, including Alzheimer’s disease.  Dementia, unlike delirium, is long-term and increasingly degenerative.  Symptoms of dementia involve memory loss, behavioral problems, significant personality changes, and degenerated motor skills.  Dementia among the elderly community has become more prevalent in recent years as the number of elderly people has increased.  Elderly people suffering from dementia require constant care and admittance to an elderly care facility is often the only choice for an elderly loved one in advanced stages of dementia.  Very few cases of dementia are reversible as dementia is generally a symptom of another degenerative disease.  Dementia should be properly diagnosed using a clinical evaluation and, often, an MRI scan will be done to determine whether or not the dementia has been caused by a stroke.  Family caregivers who care for an elderly loved one suffering from dementia can become increasingly frustrated and stressed by the responsibility of caring for the person.  Putting the elderly loved one into a qualified elderly care facility will both alleviate stress from the caregiver and ensure that the loved one is getting the necessary comprehensive care.
