Furthermore, patients with congenital internal hernias often report a history of chronic, mild, digestive complains and chronic pain or a previous visit to the emergency department because of abdominal pain that was improved with spasmolytics

Nurses and other care givers who have never met these behaviors before often do not know how to respond when a person with dementia asks difficult questions, such as requesting to see a mother who has passed away.

Qualitatively, this disease can be seen with senile plaques on the brain, and neurofibrillary tangles that affect physical changes to the brain. Since there are so many branches of dementia, it can be hard to determine which type of dementia a patient is experiencing, needing to be looked at more closely. Some warning signs of this disease include getting lost, paying for bills and trouble managing money, retelling the same stories, repeatedly asking the same questions, and losing/ misplacing items, but not being able to recall how to find them (532). Though not all people progress through this disease at the same pace and times in their lives, these are just some of the few symptoms and abnormalities that those who have Alzheimer’s can display as opposed to someone their age with a normal functioning brain and having no dementia. Quantitatively, research has shown that Alzheimer’s disease accounts for 50-70% of all neurocognitive disorders (531).
