Learn About Dementia
Let's get started. You choose where you want to begin.
About Dementia- Dementia is a complicated, often confusing health issue. The term dementia refers to a chronic , usually progressive problem of cognition that usually affects memory and almost always affects judgment, decision-making and relationships with others.
You will find a wide range of information in "About Dementia" to help you gain more confidence in your understanding, ability to communicate what is happening and use appropriate management strategies. Sections include information about the different Types of Dementia, including Alzheimer's Disease , Management Strategies, the best ways to Work with Your Doctor, Resources for where to get More Information and Help, as well as Frequently Asked Questions and a Glossary of over 375 terms commonly used..
Symptom Library- Each symptom is organized in the same way - definition, stage, what is happening in the brain, managing symptoms and doctor's diary. To see an example, take a look at Repetitive Questioning.
Symptom Profile- Doctor's appointments last for less than 12 minutes. Taking your Symptom Guide reports with you keeps the discussion focused on all the details that you have noticed and helps to remind you of the questions you have developed along the way.
Family members or others involved maybe saying "you are doing a great job" - but you feel overwhelmed because the changes you are noticing are making even more demands on your time and energy. Having a Symptom Profile report is a good way to communicate that difference. Over time it will show the types of symptoms you are seeing, their frequency and the level of commitment you are giving.
