In an article by Alzheimer’s Association it mentions that many experts who study this type like to call it “Vascular Cognitive Impairment” because it better explains the idea that your vascular thinking skills can change and it can either be small or serve. Also, in this article it mentions that Vascular Dementia is account for 10 percent of cases and that is remains underdiagnosed even though it is considered common. B. Symptoms i. With this type of Dementia, the symptoms can be very different due to how badly the blood vessel are damaged after having the stroke. ii.
Men are likely to be dull in the perception of symptom, which delays their help seeking behavior. As they do not care much about their health, it results to impact their health greater as illness might have progressed severely In contrast women have higher tendency to seek for help when they experience symptoms or are likely to have general check up which results to heighten their mortality rate compared to men with low mortality rate. Help seeking behavior has a direct impact on mortality rate. Hence, the differences in illness severity among genders are strongly influenced by their help seeking behavior. Although certain diseases can be prevented if found early, men tend to disregard the importance of medical seeking and lower their mortality rate even with a stronger body than
Women as carers often report poorer physical, mental and emotional health and wellbeing because of their caring responsibilities. This can be associated with disturbed sleep, being physically injured while providing care, and the constant pressure of caring. Time spent caring, and coping strategies, are factors in shaping carer stress. Within the caring population, female carers in particular experienced much lower levels National Women’s Health Policy 2010 of mental health compared to both male carers and the general population. This included increased levels of clinical depression, with over 50 per cent of female carers reporting being depressed for six months or more since they started caring.
Geriatric mental health is a emerging as an important public health concern. According to Word Health Organization, prevalence of depression in adults age >60 years in developed and developing countries was 0.5 million and 4.8 million respectively in 2070. Depression is a state of activity than can affect the persons thought, behavior and they felt guilty, irritable, helpless, problem with their sleeping etc.
(Depression and Anhedonia”, 2009) states, “Anhedonia is one of the main symptoms of major depressive disorder (MDD). It is the loss of interest in previously rewarding or enjoyable activities. People suffering from clinical depression lose interest in hobbies, friends, work”. This simply shows that when someone is dealing with Depression it makes them unable to show interest in things they were once interested in, making it harder to look at things positively and find pleasure in the good things in life. To prove this point, a professor named Aaron Heller did a study of the brain to show that individuals with Depression have a less positive response to certain things than someone without Depression.
This is important because Concussions can sometimes result in long-term injuries. This is a problem because you don’t want to live life in pain from one blow to the head. As said by Weill Cornell long-term concussion injuries may cause “Moderate to severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) which can cause symptoms similar to a concussion, but people with these TBIs often experience more severe problems with attention and short-term memory, have difficulty
Early School Start Times Most adolescents don’t get nearly the correct amount of sleep and the early school start times make it worse. Having school start later would have a great impact on teens’ overall health. Some people may say that teens should just go to sleep earlier, but its not that easy. Early school start times should be changed because they are dangerous, inconvenient, and it negatively affects body growth.
Migraines are generally more severe and can be debilitating. The cause of migraine is not known but many trigger factors are recognized. These include hormonal changes (during a woman's menstrual cycle), certain foods (e.g., chocolate, aged cheeses), beverages (e.g., red wine), strong odours, lack of sleep, and even stress. It is not uncommon to experience mixed tension-migraine headaches. Sinus headaches are less common than people think.
Every researcher have different point of view about the effect of age of onset of hearing loss on personality. One article concluded that loss of hearing in early life is most restrictive than losing it after speech has been developed. (Telford, 1987). The effect on personality become more devastating in post-lingual deaf persons because they loss their way of communication that produces feeling of loss that create sadness, depression and insecurity (Ramsdell, 2002).
I believe lower-class communities are not offered the same opportunities as upper-class. However, there are certain opportunities that are offered in these communities and individuals choose not to take advantage of it, because it is easier to get the money than to work for the money, i.e. welfare. I think it affects the younger population the most because they don’t have encouragement all around. For instance, they might have great programs in the community, counselors who believe in them, teachers who are supportive, but if they go home to a parent who is mentally abusing them and badgering them, then they will feel worthless because that person whom they believe and have trusted their whole life is right, they will never amount to nothing. So ultimately they feel worthless.
Making them different as a person from normal. There are many qualitative differences for instance, people with Bipolar Disorder have symptoms that include, sadness,rapid speaking,unwanted thoughts, delusions, lack of concentration, racing thoughts, disorganized behavior,irritability, aggression, agitation, elevated episodes of emotions and depression, and extreme mood swings that affects 1 out of 45 Americans in the U.S. Though these symptoms are considered to be qualitatively different from “normal”, they are also quantitatively different because these symptoms can also fit other categories besides Bipolar
- Past head trauma: Two problems can be at greater risk of this disease and that is for people who have had bad head trauma or repeated head trauma. - Lifestyle and heart health: There are some life styles that can be at a bigger risk of developing this disease and a few of them are: lack of exercise, smoking, poorly controlled diabetes, a diet that lacks fruits and vegetables. - Lifelong learning and social engagement: Mentally and socially stimulating activities can also increase the risk of developing this disease, these activities will include: increased levels of formal education, a stimulating job, mentally
The danger in believing this, is that the more broken a person becomes in your eyes, the less whole they will be, and upon throwing away the idea of humanity, morals are compromised in the pursuit of fulfilling a goal. It’s not a sacrifice, or a favor, to treat a person as your equal. I think people as a whole would benefit from learning ASL; it would open up a lot of opportunities to further connect with the people around you, and give a deeper appreciation for the way other people live. My thought process before was that the barrier between Deaf people and hearing people was insurmountable, but I have since learned that the barrier will only ever be as large as you decide it will be.
Because of this, many people became desperate and were treated with a surgery called lobotomy, which is the surgical destruction of the prefrontal lobe of a person 's brain. This had become popular as a "calming" treatment at this time. Lobotomies were often tremendously unsuccessful, and frequently caused personality changes, the inability to make decisions, and poor judgment. In the worst cases, they sometimes lead to a coma or even death (p.13-14). Electroconvulsive therapy, which is when electric currents are passed through the brain, intentionally causing a momentary seizure, was used as treatment for people with depression but not as often as lobotomies at this time.
Firstly, the desire to get mental health is shunned from because a person fears to be stigmatized. This remains as the number one reason for people not taking mental health services. Then again, access to this service comes with a high price tag. This means only few will consider paying for mental health and will view it unnecessary. Then again, mental health care providers are scarce and hard to get.
