Dementia

Elders just need a little understanding and lots of love from loved ones.
This pic is just a small way to spread awareness on this dreaded and probably lesser
known ailment called "Dementia".
Dementia is a neurological illness in which the patient suffers progressive loss of
memory, judgment, and awareness. It may be accompanied by problems with
speech, social behaviors, toileting, waking up in night and walking.
Many a time they feel and imagine visuals of people in and around their room and
house. They develop their own imaginary characters, develop stories around their characters and keep seeing them during days and nights.
The patient is frequently unaware of changes that family members notice as declines in daily living skills and memory, or alterations in personality and reasoning ability.
Since there are many different kinds of dementia, accurate diagnosis is important.
Some forms of dementia are treatable, while others are not.
Alzheimer’s Disease is the most common cause of dementia in the elderly.
The dementia patient requires progressively intensified care and management by the family or other caregivers. As patients lose the ability to remember important events and people, manage finances, navigate and drive, prepare meals, and maintain safety, family members must provide assistance.
Often, patients are unable to comprehend their own inability to function, and may exhibit emotional and behavioral symptoms, which are difficult for loved ones to understand.
Strong support and education of the caregivers enables the patient to remain in the home as long as possible, with enhanced quality of life for everyone in the family.
