Helping Loved Ones with Memory Loss
 
01:44
One in eight people suffer from either long term or short term memory loss. As doctors work to treat the patient they have some tips on how loved ones can also help. Anne Petrin, a memory care nurse practitioner with Lee Health, says it’s frustrating for patients who struggle to remember names, events, even everyday information. “I think the biggest thing is they feel like they’re not treated as a person anymore, they’re treated as a disease.” A memory loss diagnosis has big impacts on the patient and on their loved ones. “Realize that everybody’s trying their best and approach it with a deep breath, and a sense that we’re in this together and we’re going to make the best decisions possible. And I’m sorry goes a long way,” said Petrin. She says it’s important to make sure the patient is heard. “They deserve respect, they have opinions, and even though there’s memory impairment, or another type of impairment they have a right to express themselves.” Loved ones also need to let the patient speak for themselves. If they get stuck on a thought, instead of finishing it for them prompt them with a few questions. Most importantly, always try to be patient with them. “This isn’t a point of aggravation. They’re not repeating because they’re trying to get on your last nerve, but it’s truly a fault of the brain,” said Petrin. Make sure the patient is writing things down and keep them on a regular eating and sleeping schedule. “Have a routine as much as possible, schedule in things like exercise, schedule in things like brain games, schedule in things that are fun,” said Petrin. Loved ones can also ask their physician for guidance on how to best help the patient.

Creative Interventions for Dementia
 
03:09
Many costs related to dementia include pharmaceutical interventions such as Acetylecholinasterase inhibitors and glutamate antagonists, that essentially preserve 6-9 months worth of cognition overall. Other costs are associated with pharmaceutical management of behaviors. There are a number of non-pharmaceutical and creative interventions for dementia that can delay progression of the disease, reduce incidence of injuries associated with falls, reduce sundowning behaviors and creative interventions for behaviors that could limit the utilization of restraint use such as chair alarms, your voice, merry walkers and chemicals. This course is designed to meet those goals.

Geriatric Competent Care Webinar: Presentation and Diagnosis of Alzheimer's Disease
 
01:28:54
Title: Presentation and Diagnosis of Alzheimer's Disease Description: This webinar presents core competencies needed for the assessment and diagnosis of cognitive impairment in older adults. Common clinical case presentations of memory problems are subtle in onset, often with a lack of patient awareness, which can result in under-diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, and a delay in care management. In addition, normal age-related changes in memory may be misdiagnosed as dementia. The prevalence of dementia in late life is age-related, increasing particularly after age 85. The different causes of dementia include vascular disease and Lewy body dementia, with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) the most common cause for late-life progressive cognitive decline. Primary care providers can, in most cases, accurately assess cognitive changes. The assessment process includes a careful history, physical examination, functional, cognitive, and social/economic assessments, and selected laboratory and radiological tests. Effectively communicating the diagnosis to patients and their family/caregivers is a critical part of the diagnostic process. Webinar Presenters: •Chris Callahan, MD, Professor, Department of Medicine, Indiana University; Director of Indiana University Center for Aging Research •Beth Galik, PhD, CRNP, Associate Professor, School of Nursing, University of Maryland; Robert Wood Johnson Nurse Faculty Scholar •Irene Moore, MSW, LISW-S, Professor of Family and Community Medicine, University of Cincinnati College of Medicine Learning Objectives: •Identify at least three major causes of progressive dementias in older adults. •Demonstrate knowledge of at least one tool used to assess cognitive functioning. •Outline some key elements of a social assessment that may inform a comprehensive evaluation of dementia.

Dementia At the End of Life: What are the Symptoms?
 
02:02
Dementia is not a specific disease. It's an overall term that describes a wide range of symptoms associated with a decline in memory or other thinking skills severe enough to reduce a person's ability to perform everyday activities. Alzheimer's disease accounts for 60 to 80 percent of cases. Vascular dementia, which occurs after a stroke, is the second most common dementia type. But there are many other conditions that can cause symptoms of dementia, including some that are reversible, such as thyroid problems and vitamin deficiencies. Dementia is often incorrectly referred to as "senility" or "senile dementia," which reflects the formerly widespread but incorrect belief that serious mental decline is a normal part of aging. People with advanced dementia can no longer communicate, they cannot share their concerns.While symptoms of dementia can vary greatly, at least two of the following core mental functions must be significantly impaired to be considered dementia: Memory Communication and language Ability to focus and pay attention Reasoning and judgment Visual perception Experts suggest that symptoms of the final stage of Alzheimer's disease include some of the following: Being unable to move around on one's own Being unable to speak or make oneself understood Needing help with most, if not all, daily activities Eating problems such as difficulty swallowing or no appetite People with dementia may have problems with short-term memory, keeping track of a purse or wallet, paying bills, planning and preparing meals, remembering appointments or traveling out of the neighborhood. Many dementias are progressive, meaning symptoms start out slowly and gradually get worse. If you or a loved one is experiencing memory difficulties or other changes in thinking skills, don't ignore them. See a doctor soon to determine the cause.

What Are The Differences Between DEMENTIA and ALZHEIMER'S Disease
 
10:31
What Are The Differences Between DEMENTIA and ALZHEIMER'S Disease . Alzheimer’s disease and dementia are often used interchangeably as many people believe that one means the other. In fact, the distinction between the two diseases often causes confusion on the behalf of patients, families and caregivers. Discover how the two diagnoses, while related, are remarkably different. What Is The Difference Between Alzheimer's and Dementia? Alzheimer’s and dementia are still a mystery in many ways. This is why the two similar diseases are often mixed up in every day conversation and understanding. According to the National Institute on Aging (NIA), Dementia is a brain disorder that affects communication and performance of daily activities and Alzheimer’s disease is a form of dementia that specifically affects parts of the brain that control thought, memory and language. Read on to discover more particulars on how the two diseases vary and why there’s still a lot of scientific research needed—as well as public awareness—around these world-wide epidemics. What is dementia? Dementia is an umbrella term for a set of symptoms including impaired thinking and memory. It is a term that is often associated with the cognitive decline of aging. However, issues other than Alzheimer’s can cause dementia. Other common causes of dementia are Huntington’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. What is Alzheimer’s Disease? According to the Center for Disease Control, Alzheimer’s disease is a common cause of dementia causing as many as 50 to 70% of all dementia cases. In fact, Alzheimer’s is a very specific form of dementia. Symptoms of Alzheimer’s include impaired thought, impaired speech, and confusion. Doctors use a variety of screenings to determine the cause of dementia including blood tests, mental status evaluations and brain scans. How Are They Different? When a person is diagnosed with dementia, they are being diagnosed with a set of symptoms. This is similar to someone who has a sore throat. Their throat is sore but it is not known what is causing that particular symptom. It could be allergies, strep throat, or a common cold. Similarly, when someone has dementia they are experiencing symptoms without being told what is causing those symptoms. Another major difference between the two is that Alzheimer’s is not a reversible disease. It is degenerative and incurable at this time. Some forms of dementia, such as a drug interaction or a vitamin deficiency, are actually reversible or temporary. Once a cause of dementia is found appropriate treatment and counseling can begin. Until a proper diagnosis is made, the best approach to any dementia is engagement, communication and loving care. The Need for More Public Awareness and Research Funding While the differences between Alzheimer’s disease and dementia are clear to families dealing with the diseases, more public awareness is needed to differentiate between the two. Further understanding of what exactly causes Alzheimer’s disease will help to clear any confusion and hopefully lead to better treatments plans and, ultimately, a cure.

Don't let a diagnosis of MCI isolate you
 
02:52
Mild cognitive impairment can be frightening and isolating. It can cause you to withdraw. But your brain needs exactly the opposite. To protect your cognition, you need to stay mentally active and socially engaged. A new program in Philadelphia has found a fun, innovative way to help people with mild cognitive impairment do just that. I hope this program inspires you to go out and do something similar. At the very least, it's a valuable reminder that even though you are struggling with memory loss, you still have something to offer others. See all the Go Cogno Pathway videos here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLzmcxMVMH0tA2JoED3wlSVhNaYZB6Tm2t Visit the Go Cogno website: https://gocogno.com/ Follow me on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TonyDearing6085/ Follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/tonydearing?lang=en Here is a transcript of the video. So last week, I talked about the importance of cognitive stimulation, and staying active and mentally engaged. But that’s easier said than done. If you are diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment, that can be frightening and isolating. It can cause you to withdraw. That’s why I want to tell you today about a really innovative program in Philadelphia that’s helping people with MCI do exactly the opposite. I’m Tony Dearing. I write an award-winning column on brain health and prevention of dementia for NJ.com and Star-Ledger and I operate GoCogno.com, a website for people dealing with mild cognitive impairment. So this new program in the city is brotherly love is a something that I saw on Philly.com, and I think it’s great. It’s a collaboration between the Penn Memory Center at the Children’s Hospital, and it lets people with mild cognitive impairment or early-Sstage dementia act as volunteers, entertaining young patients by reading to them or coloring with them. Here’s one of the the volunteers who puts on puppet shows for sick kids. So volunteering is one of the best possible activities for your brain. But it can be hard for people to do that. People may fear that they’re going to encounter a situation where they say the wrong thing, or forget what they’re supposed to do, or a situation they can’t handle, and that’s understandable. But you know what, you still have something to offer. You still have value. And I think it’s fantastic that this program in Philadelphia has recognized that and created this opportunity for people with mild cognitive impairment and children to spend time together and for both of them to get benefit out of it.

MCI: Why a diagnosis is always better than living in denial
 
04:48
When it comes to mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's, people may avoid getting a diagnosis — or doctors may avoid giving them the diagnosis — because they think there's nothing that can be done. That's a huge mistake, experts say. Know is always better than not knowing, and the earlier you get that diagnosis, the better. My column based on my interview with Dr. Michelle Papka is available here: http://www.nj.com/healthfit/index.ssf/2017/09/is_it_alzheimers_turn_your_worries_into_answers_an.html See all the Go Cogno Pathway videos here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLzmcxMVMH0tA2JoED3wlSVhNaYZB6Tm2t Visit the Go Cogno website: https://gocogno.com/ Follow me on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TonyDearing6085/ Follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/tonydearing?lang=en Here is a transcript of this video. More than 5 million people in the United States are living with Alzheimer's disease. Michele Papka has spent almost 25 years dealing with people who have Alzheimer's or mild cognitive impairment and there's a statistic that bothers her every bit as much. It's the number of people who have Alzheimer’s and don't know it either because they're afraid to find out or because their doctor is keeping it from them. Papka told me: ‘Less than half of people with Alzheimer's Disease are ever told of their diagnosis. It’s a scary statistic. The bottom line is the majority of people are either not coming for medical attention or the ones who are seeking medical attention aren’t being told of their diagnosis.” So today my topic is denial and diagnosis because knowing is better than not knowing and the longer you wait to address your cognitive decline the fewer options you'll have. Hello, my name is Tony Dearing. I write an award-winning column on brain health for NJ.com and the Star-Ledger and I operate GoCogno.com, a website devoted to the needs and concerns of people with mild cognitive impairment. My column this week is based on an interview with Michelle Papka, the founder and director of The Cognitive and Research Center of New Jersey. When people are concerned they may have a cognitive problem, she's the one they go to for diagnosis and help putting together a treatment plan, getting all the right specialists involved and dealing with the emotional, psychological and support they need. Papka talked a lot to me about the importance of early diagnosis and how many people aren’t getting that, in many cases because their doctors are telling them. A 2015 report by the Alzheimer’s Association found that only 45% of Alzheimer’s patients or their family are being told of the diagnosis. Doctors may feel that there's nothing they can do about it and telling the patient will only stigmatize them. Many doctors also feel that they're honoring the wishes of the patient not to know, but Papka was very clear about this. When patients are surveyed, they say they want to know. My site is devoted to people with mild cognitive impairment, so if you're watching this video you probably have a diagnosis, and even though that diagnosis can be isolating and frightening and hard to hear, you're still better off having it. Papka says there are many reasons why, but here are three big ones. First it may not be Alzheimer's. In fact only about 50% of people diagnosed with MCI turn out to have Alzheimer's. For the other half, it's something else — often treatable. Here's a list of things that can cause cognitive loss, including depression, sleep disorders, a vitamin deficiency or a bad reaction to medications. Second, an early diagnosis gives you the option of participating in a clinical trial where you have a chance to receive an experimental treatment that may help you. Third, that early knowledge allows you to have a treatment plan and have specialists like Papka put together a medical team around your specific needs and help you find resources in your community. You can find out more about this by reading my column and there's a link to it in the show notes and I also invite you to come to my website, GoCogno.com, where you’ll find much more in the way of information and resources for people with mild cognitive impairment. Thanks for joining me today and I hope to see you again next week. Until then, as always, be kind to your mind. This site is educational, and is not intended as medical advice.

Our low staff to patient ratios will help to support the need for additional activities in the evening hours when “sun downing” may occur, as this is a time when residents tend to have greater care needs. The Woodlands now offers 3 different levels of care including skilled nursing/Rehabilitation including Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy, Long Term Care and now specialized memory care. Another important factor to consider is how to pay for memory care services in a facility. Many Assisted Living facilities are private pay only.

Geriatric Competent Care: Communication of Alzheimer's Diagnosis by Irene Moore
 
19:05
This webinar presents some of the core competencies that are most fundamental to the assessment and diagnosis of cognitive impairment in older adults. The prevalence of dementia in late life is associated is age-related and becomes quite common after age 85 years. Common clinical case presentations of memory problems include subtle onset and lack of patient awareness. Normal age-related changes in memory, depression, and delirium and be misdiagnosed as dementia. The different causes of dementia include vascular disease and Lewy body dementia, with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) the most common cause for late-life progressive cognitive decline. Primary care providers can in most cases, accurately conduct the assessment of cognitive changes in late life. The assessment process includes a careful history, physical examination, functional, cognitive, and social/economic assessments, and selected laboratory and radiological tests. Effectively communicating the diagnosis to the patient and their family/caregivers is a critical part of the diagnostic process.

Physician Burnout | Which doctors have the highest burnout rates?
 
02:58
In this video, Dr. Webb discusses physician burnout and what things some physicians have done to avert it. Link here: https://www.medscape.com/slideshow/2018-lifestyle-burnout-depression-6009235#1 The health care environment—with its packed work days, demanding pace, time pressures, and emotional intensity—can put physicians and other clinicians at high risk for burnout. Burnout is a long-term stress reaction marked by emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and a lack of sense of personal accomplishment. In recent years, the rising prevalence of burnout among clinicians (over 50 percent in some studies) has led to questions on how it affects access to care, patient safety, and care quality. Burned-out doctors are more likely to leave practice, which reduces patients’ access to and continuity of care. Burnout can also threaten patient safety and care quality when depersonalization leads to poor interactions with patients and when burned-out physicians suffer from impaired attention, memory, and executive function.

There has been more than one study on how to improve memory and reasons for memory loss. Let's review some causes of impaired memory. Normally, once a person stops the use of the prescription drug that caused the amnesia, memory begins to improve. Even though you should always be aware of the side effects of any drug, it is possible that something new will develop that wasn't discovered in the study of the drug. ~131~

Each year millions of patients worldwide suffer from an episode of severe sepsis. With advances in early detection and antibiotic therapy, the majority of these patients are released from the hospital and appear to be healthy. However, it has been suspected that many are discharged with a new, poorly understood array of long-term cognitive and functional impairments. This video defines sepsis, outlines the current evidence for long-term impairment and discusses the implications of these findings.

What is Dementia?
 
02:57
What is Dementia? This week’s video looks at what is Dementia? Dementia is an umbrella term that is used to describe several diseases that lead to cognitive impairment and doesn’t have a cure. There are over 850,000 people in the UK that suffer from Dementia and these numbers are predicted to rise with the increasing ageing population. Dementia is often thought to be Alzheimer’s disease, however this is a misconception, Alzheimer’s disease is one of the several causes of Dementia. Dementia is a clinical syndrome with many causes, it can be defined as an acquired loss of mental function that affects cognition. it must be severe enough that it causes a negative change to the person socially or in terms of occupation and while these are occurring the person must be in an otherwise clear state of mind, not delirious for example During dementia there is damage to the nerve cells of the brain and it is usually a progressive condition, meaning that overtime it gets worse, this is because unlike other cells in our bodies when a nerve cell dies it cannot be replaced, this will eventually lead to the brain shrinking in size known as brain atrophy. The symptoms that a person will get depends on the cause of the dementia and the area of the brain that is affected. For example, if cells in the temporal lobe are affected, the person may have trouble with language, if nerve cells in the hippocampus are affected, the person may start having problems with memory, and so on. But the common symptoms of dementia are a loss of memory, a loss of physical co- ordination and impaired cognition. The main cause of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease which accounts for about 50 -70% of cases, followed by Vascular dementia and dementia with Lewy bodies, there are other causes such as Frontotemporal dementia, dementia relating to medications, vitamin deficiencies, chronic brain infections, thyroid gland problems, in certain cases even depression can present as dementia. It is possible for a patient to have what is known as mixed dementia, this is a dementia that has two or more causes. Mild cognitive impairment is a state that is in between normal cognition and dementia, normally it presents as having a mild impairment with memory that is more advance that is expected for their age, but not enough to be dementia What is Dementia? www.youtube.com/watch?v=0o6OFjESelQ&feature=youtu.be FOLLOW ME Twitter and Instagram: Medic_Ene Twitter: https://twitter.com/Medic_Ene Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/medic_ene/ MedicEne provides a fun and different view of medical problems among other things, hope you enjoy it!
