Read In a study of 2,249 California women published in the July American Journal of Public Health, researchers reported that older women who maintained large social networks reduced their risk of dementia and delayed or prevented cognitive impairment.

[4] Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) is characterized by drastic personality changes and language difficulties. Of course, there are physical disabilities that influence which exercises are appropriate, but physical functions that have been lost due to lack of activity can be restored through an appropriate exercise program. Mental health has an impact on physical health and vice versa.

If you see this happening, cut back or try less strenuous activities so that your loved one can stay active as long as possible. Likewise, terms such as "vascular dementia" are often used to describe causes as well as types of dementia. The use of one or more "cues" to assist in the performance of a specified therapeutic task, can be highly effective. Alzheimer's disease accounts for 70% of all cases of dementia. Using this model, it is possible that capacity to possess and use a firearm, similar to other higher order complex tasks, such as driving and financial management, may be lost in early dementia, and perhaps even during mild cognitive impairment; this will vary between individuals.

Whereas the Strong and colleagues consensus criteria stress the presence of executive function impairment, several studies have documented non-executive cognitive impairment in ALS. Dementia is a syndrome that affects memory, thinking, behaviour and ability to perform everyday activities – usually of a chronic or progressive nature. There is strong evidence that staff training, promoting person-centred care (PCC) and utilising non-pharmacological interventions improve some key health outcomes and can reduce antipsychotic drug use [ 10, 16 ].

Furthermore, glutamatergic dysregulation is implicated in several pathological mechanisms in Alzheimer’s disease including the release and toxicities of the proteins implicated in Alzheimer’s disease: amyloid-beta (which form amyloid plaques) and tau (which form neurofibrillary tangles). Nurses were often called “attendants” to imply a more humanitarian approach to care. Psychiatric nurses can make a distinctive contribution to people's mental health. [65] Since dementia impairs normal communication due to changes in receptive and expressive language, as well as the ability to plan and problem solve, agitated behaviour is often a form of communication for the person with dementia.
