Cognitive impairment can be caused by a variety of conditions, commonly Alzheimer's Disease, multi-infarct dementia, and post-traumatic brain injury. This program describes how symptomatic conditions such as impaired awareness, memory, mood, and judgment affect providing care. Specific strategies for providing care to patients with dementia are demonstrated in an acute care setting, and the assessment of critical areas is discussed, including: communication, patient comfort, daily caregiving issues, discharge planning and follow up. After viewing this program, the learner should be able to: 1. Define cognition and cognitive functions. 2. Recognize cognitive impairment. 3. Know the causes of cognitive impairment ( Alzheimers disease, multi-infarct dementia, traumatic brain injury). 4. Know the effects of cognitive impairment on daily functions. 5. Know the impact of hospitalization on the cognitively impaired patient. 6. Be able to assess patient on admission. 7. Know nursing interventions for patients with cognitive impairment. 8. Be able to provide a safe and comforting environment by: preserving the patients functional status; preserving patient autonomy and sense of self-worth; and providing education for follow up needs.

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.

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~

Teaching students to practice in today's healthcare system is challenging! Not only must they learn the content knowledge and skills required to provide care, they must also learn to manage the complexity of the clinical environment. Drawing on studies of how new and experienced nurses manage the complexity of their work, in this presentation Patricia Ebright describes the concept of stacking and how critical this process is to the preparation of new nurses to provision of safe, quality care. This video is part of "Managing the Complexity of Nursing Work: Cognitive Stacking" the second in a series of learning modules developed by the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) project.

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.

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.

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.

Read my full article on mild cognitive impairment and driving, including my 6 tips for staying safe on the road: https://gocogno.com/mild-cognitive-impairment-and-driving/ If you've been diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment, you don't want to become a danger to yourself or others on the road. In many cases, people with MCI can continue to drive safely — sometimes for years. But it's question you want to consider carefully. Here's what you need to know to make the best decision for you. 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: It’s a beautiful fall day here in New Jersey, and I’m headed out in a few minutes. I’ve got a doctor’s appointment, then I’m going to the grocery store, and then driving into Bernardsville to have lunch with my wife — all the kind of normal daily activities that we take for granted, until we face the possibility that someone is going to take the car keys away. For someone with mild cognitive impairment, that’s a real concern. Getting that diagnosis can be so shocking and frightening, and all sorts of worries race through your head. One of the first is likely to be, “Do I have to quit driving?” That’s a loaded question and one you want to consider carefully. But don’t assume the worst. In most cases, people with mild cognitive impairment can continue to drive safely — often for years. So let’s talk about why that is. Hi, my name is 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 with mild cognitive impairment. If you’ve been diagnosed with MCI, you don’t want to become a danger to yourself or anyone else on the road. And speaking statistically, you probably aren’t. One recent study looked at 57 adults over the age of 65 with mild cognitive impairment, and compared them to 265 adults with normal memory for their age. What they found was the people with MCI scored slightly lower on driving tests, but the difference was insignificant, and both groups scored high enough to be considered safe drivers. Now that doesn’t mean that every person with mild cognitive impairment is safe to drive. But it really does underscore the difference between mild cognitive impairment and dementia. Because MCI is not dementia, and this is one case where there really is a difference. A person diagnosed with Alzheimer’s is going to have to stop driving fairly soon. They may potentially be able to drive for another year or two, but eventually they will have to give up the car keys. In fact, the concern is serious enough that your doctor would be required to report you to the state motor vehicle commission and you’d have to take a test and pass that driving test in order to continue to drive in the short term. Now with mild cognitive impairment, it’s completely different. Both the American and Canadian Medical Associations have taken the stance that mild cognitive impairment does not warrant a loss of driving privileges. In fact, unlike a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s, if you have MCI, neither you or your doctors is even required to report that to the state. Now you still need to make a decision that’s right for you. And to help you do that, I invite you to go to my site, GoCogno.com, where I have published an article with safety tips for driving with MCI. This will help show you how you can continue to drive safely and also help you know when it may be time to consider giving up the keys. Another thing that’s important to understand is that in most cases, signs that your driving ability is slipping occur long before you are likely to be involved in any serious accident. So if you know what those signs are and you can recognize them, that’s another way to stay safe and be comfortable and secure on the road. I’ve put together a list of 20 of those common warning signs and if it’s helpful, I’d be glad to send it to you. Send me an email to email@example.com and I’ll be glad to send you that list of 20 common warning signs. So I hope you’ve found this helpful, and sorry, but I am going to sign off now. I’ve got to get to my doctor’s appointment. But thanks for joining me today, and I’ll 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. It offers information about lifestyle choices that have been proven to help protect cognition. Always consult your doctor before making changes that can impact your health.

The Woodlands Health and Rehab Center now has a specialized and secured Memory Care Unit, named Comfort Corner, which is the only dedicated unit in a skilled nursing facility in Ravenna. Our unit has a comfortable and home like atmosphere that is also functional for the memory-impaired person with a large open space, dining/activities area, Memory Care Life Stations and decorations suited for people with dementia. In addition each dedicated staff member working on the unit goes through 9 hours of training related to Memory Care. Our 25 bed unit has a LPN program director who has many years of experience working with people with Memory Care challenges. 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.

Interior design can be a powerful tool to helping everyone live better, whether it's designing for Alzheimer's, babies, or the rest of us quirky humans. Theresa's dad has Alzheimer's. A few months ago, her family decided that to help preserve the health and vibrancy of her mom, it was time to move dad into a memory care facility. Her parents had lived together for 47+ years, so it wasn't a decision made lightly. Throughout the process of watching her dad become confused about things that used to come so naturally, and witnessing attempts by her mother and now the care facility to make his daily life easier, Theresa kept coming back to one simple question: How can designers help caregivers extend the time at home for a family member with Alzheimer's? After much painstaking research, there isn't an obvious conversation happening in the design community about Alzheimer's and dementia. So on this episode of MyFixitUpLife talk, Theresa is sharing a quick tour of the common area at her dad's memory care facility, and talking with a few experts to explore how designers can reach into their bag of essentials (color, pattern, texture, shine, shape, layout) to make a difference for families. Someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer's every 67 seconds and it's the 6th leading cause of deaths in the U.S., so we're betting that this is a conversation that affects most all of us personally. Marilucy Lopes is talking about how caregivers can modify the home environment, from painting black on doors that shouldn't be opened to using familiar elements from hobbies and family photos to help trigger memories. Lisa Burkholder from the Alzheimer's association's Delaware valley chapter is sharing why pattern can cause fear and confusion, about how including nature into the environment can be soothing, and how to connect with other families through the walk. Mitzi Beach explores how color can both create order and confusion for someone who is memory impaired. Mitzi and Theresa are talking about how there is a parallel between caring for an Alzheimer's patient and a baby. There are tons of resources on how to baby-proof a home, but we are at a loss for resources when it comes to designing for Alzheimer's.

Dementia represents an increasing challenge for health care in Australia and an expected deficit in the dementia care workforce necessitates the need for training and more skilled management. There are now nearly 300,000 people in Australia living with dementia. By the year 2050 there will be almost one million. Current trends indicate about 1600 new cases of dementia each week. One in four people over the age of 85 now have dementia. Dementia is a broad term used to describe a group of conditions or symptoms that cause a progressive decline in a person's functioning, including memory loss and cognitive impairment. It is usually accompanied by changes in normal emotional reactions, as well as psychological and behavioural changes, such as depression, wandering, anxiety, hallucinations, aggression and disinhibition. This progressive decline presents particular problems for family and carers as well as primary health care professionals and the staff of aged care or specialist residential units. Managing dementia in any setting can be challenging and frustrating and usually requires well designed decision pathways and management strategies. In non-specialist settings delirium can often be confused with dementia and pharmacological treatment can present problems. This program takes a practical skills based approach to the challenge of dementia behaviour in various settings. It examines best practice strategies and principles for a range of behavioural and psychological dementia symptoms. It examines the issues for people in rural and remote Australia.

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!
