The injuries that is critical in the areas such as thalamus and hypothalamus region will lead to the vascular dementia. Thus, people with vascular type of dementia tend to have disease of the blood vessels such as tobacco usage, high blood pressure, heart attacks, etc. Mixed dementia: Mixed dementia is another type of dementia, it is the combination of Alzheimer’s and vascular dementia or in general it is the conditions where changes can be represented with considering more than one type of dementia which occurs simultaneously in the brain, thus this type of dementia causes 10% of dementia cases. The symptoms of this type of dementia is that it depends on the type of dementia that are occurred simultaneously in the brain but it may have the same symptoms of Alzheimer’s type of dementia. Dementia with Lewy
Going through this uncertainty and confusion often causes people to retreat to the safety of established memories, and they begin to lose awareness of the world around them. 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. It can also be difficult to know how to reply if they believe they need to go to work or collect children from school. It is important to remember, in the later stages communication is most challenging, that continuing to interact with the person who has dementia is more important than ever. The first thing to remember when talking to people with dementia is to keep things simple.
(Hard Knocks). New information regarding brain development suggests that most people don’t reach full maturity of the brain until around the age of 25. (Brain Maturity Extends). In some cases, players have been diagnosed with C.T.E which is a “head trauma-induced disease linked to depression” according to the article “Hard Knocks” (Schwarz). C.T.E can be connected to impulse control problems, depression, memory loss, and dementia.
A considerable volume of her patients had short-term memory loss. These patients had diverse backgrounds: the elderly with and without Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia; the middle-aged with brain injury, and the young ones with mental health problems. Commonly short-term memory loss is discussed more in the elderly and patients with dementia; however, she enlightened me on short-term memory loss in the middle aged and young as well. Steptin emphasized that short-term memory loss in the elderly is attributable to a genetic predisposition, disuse atrophy (lessened brain use hence loss of brain cells); as well as due to decreased physical activity. This can be intensified by depression, inadequate nutrition and dehydration.
Mild Alzheimer’s is the beginning stage of the disease and usually lasts about two to four years. Symptoms of mild Alzheimer’s include less interest and energy, loss of recent memories, mood swings, and problems with language. If a person demonstrates some symptoms of Alzheimer’s, they do not necessarily have the disease because several medical conditions share the same symptoms. The next stage is moderate Alzheimer’s, which lasts about two to ten years. Symptoms of moderate Alzheimer’s include not being able to recognize people, confused speech, wandering, trouble sleeping, time and place confusion, and delusions.
Symptoms sometimes present slowly, and sometimes they are not all at the same time. This means that one person may experience severe symptoms all at once or they may experience symptoms that are spread out through their sickness. The most common symptoms of mononucleosis are extreme fatigue, sore throat, head and body aches, a swollen spleen, and swollen lymph nodes in the back and armpits. It is uncommon, but sometimes a person may even experience a swollen liver that can be accompanied by the swollen spleen, and a rash. The rash develops as small red widespread patches, and it usually lasts for about a week.
However, both of these parameters are variable and not entirely objective especially when phacomorphic angle closure often affects an elderly population where dementia and neglect are common 11. In addition, studies in acute primary angle closure (APAC) have shown that more than half of the patients with a single attack can have no visual field defects 19. On the other hand, retinal nerve fiber layer measurements can detect early GON as its damage often precedes visual field
Senile Dementia is a form of intellectual impairment observed in the elderly.Ten percent of people above the age of sixty-five have this disease.This causes people to forget items,people, and their lives.There are 4 types of remembering recollection,recall,recognition, and relearning which are all affected by Senile Dementia. Around 47 million people around the world suffer from this with ten-million of diagnosis being made each year. The Limbic System is the part of the brain responsible for emotional expression,seizure expression, and memory storage along with recall.This part of the brain is affected by dementia.There are five stages of memory, memory begins when information from the senses, such as a whiff or sound arrives in the
People’s working memory slowly declines over time and can greatly be seen when the memory involves speed processing, episodic, long-term memory. But by exercising out brains we can keep our memory, at least some parts from declining as rapidly or till later in life. Alzheimer’s Disease begins be looking like someone is just get old and are forgetting where things are. I personally sometime forget where I park my car on campus some days especially, if I don’t park in my usual spot it takes me a few second to have to think of where I parked that day. The people with Alzheimer’s starts forgetting words and remembering the new things, like names.
In the UK, over five hundred thousand abuse against elderly people occurred each year. These abuses can occur anywhere, including in someone own home, residential home or hospital. Both older men and women can be at risk of abuse, though the majority of victims are women over the age of 70’s. There are five common types of abuse; physical, psychological, financial, sexual abuse and neglect. Where does elderly abuse to place Elder abuse tends to take place where the senior lives: most often in the home where abusers are often adult children, other family members such as grandchildren, or spouses/partners of elders.
In another article called “Muscular Dystrophy Life Expectancy” says “Duchenne muscular dystrophy is the most common childhood form of muscular dystrophy. This condition is associated with a short lifespan. In most of the cases, children will need a wheelchair as teenagers, and they usually die in their early 20s. However, some people may live up to 40 years.” After reading this article it is sad to say that not many people live a very long life with this disorder, but I read the comments below saying that they have Limb-girdle disease and they are still alive at the age of 73 years old. I suppose the type of muscular dystrophy you have and your body type will vary on how long that they may
