#endzheimer EMPOWERING CHANGE Dementia – Dementia Home Learn Act #endzheimer EMPOWERING CHANGE A National Strategy For Dementia In The Maltese Islands What is Dementia? Dementia is an umbrella term used to describe various brain disorders that cause progressive loss of brain function. Dementia is usually characterised by memory loss, especially memory of recent events, problems with reasoning and communication, as well as a reduction in an individual's ability to carry out daily activities such as washing, dressing and cooking. Although dementia is more common among older people, younger people can also be affected this is called Early Onset Dementia Statistics: People are living longer and the older we become the more likely we are to get dementia. It is estimated that in 2015, in Malta, there will be 6,000 persons over 60 years living with dementia. This is projected to increase to 10,000 persons by 2030. This trend is similar to other developed countries around the world. IMPORTANT: Dementia is not a direct consequence of ageing. Getting older does not necessarily mean you are going to get dementia. What are the Signs and symptoms of dementia? The symptoms vary from one person to the other depending on the type of dementia and which areas of the brain are mostly involved. However the following signs might indicate that the person could have dementia: Memory changes that disrupt life Such as forgetting the names of family members, experience problems in carrying out daily activities and repeating the same question or experience. Challenges in planning or solving problems May have difficulties with handling money especially to work out their change, and may find it hard to solve problems. Difficulty in completing tasks at home / work / leisure The person might find it difficult to follow a busy schedule, takes longer to complete tasks, and may find it harder to complete more novel tasks Confusion with time or place Losing awareness of which day it is or of the time of day, may get lost in familiar places. Trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships The person might find it difficult to judge distances. They might look at the mirror and think someone else is in the room. Misplacing things The person may put things in unusual places. Things may be lost and the person is unable to go back over her steps to find them again. Decreased or poor judgement The person may make odd decisions which could lead to decreased safety. If the person still drives make sure she/he is still safe on the road, a driving assessment could help you decide. Withdrawal from work or social activities The person is likely to withdraw from some activities which are perceived as too demanding. Changes in mood and personality People with dementia may also feel sad, frightened or angry about what is happening to them. Dementia may also affect parts of the brain that control emotion. Do you suspect that your loved one has dementia? 1. If you suspect any deterioration in memory If you suspect any deterioration in memory, change in personality and behaviour contact your doctor as soon as possible. 2. You might need to contact a professional rather than only a psychiatrist You might need to contact a psychiatrist, neurologist or a consultant geriatrician for a more detail and thorough investigations of signs and symptoms. Your doctor could refer you to the Memory Clinic at Rehabilitation Hospital Karen Grech for further investigation. 3. Make sure that when you accompany your loved one to the doctor Make sure that when you accompany your loved one to the doctor, you present yourself with important information which might help to diagnose or rule out dementia (how long you have been noticing the signs and symptoms, daily medication, diet, alcohol use, changes in onea€?s life such as retirement or bereavement). 4. Phone the Dementia Helpline on 1771 Phone the Dementia Helpline on 1771 Why is early diagnosis important in dementia? Step 1 1. There might be other conditions rather than dementia that are causing the problems such as infections, problems with the thyroid gland, depression, alcohol use, vitamin deficiencies, etc. Step 2 The sooner the diagnosis, the sooner the treatment. There is no cure but treatment can slow down the rate of the progression of the disease and could improve function in everyday activities. Step 3 The sooner the diagnosis the sooner you can plan for it and this enables you to learn about this condition and plan ahead. Can dementia be prevented? Remaining socially involved Activities that combine mental, physical and social stimulation are ideal. Volunteering, going out with family or friends, joining a club or joining a walking or dancing group could be fun ways to remain healthy. Stay mentally active Keeping your brain active through activities such as reading, doing crosswords or Sudoku, playing cards, or playing bingo may help to reduce risks of Alzheimera€?s disease. Going to day or evening classes could also be interesting ways to keep mentally active. Stop smoking Smoking can cause your arteries to narrow which can lead to a rise in your blood pressure. It also increases your risk of developing cardiovascular diseases, cancer and dementia. Drink alcohol in moderation Moderate drinking (not more than one unit) of alcohol could protect against dementia, BUT excess consumption can cause serious problems including alcohol-related dementia. Stick to the recommended limits for alcohol consumption. Exercise regularly This will make your heart and blood circulatory system more efficient, decreasing your risk of developing dementia. Maintain a healthy weight - The best way of tackling obesity is to reduce the number of calories you eat and take regular exercise. Your doctor will be able to give you further information and advice about how you can do this. Eat a healthy diet Choose Your Food Wisely Eating a low-fat, high-fibre diet is recommended, including plenty of fresh fruit, vegetables and whole grains. Get your blood pressure, cholesterol and sugar levels checked regularly Uncontrolled high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes could increase the risks of dementia. > < 1 - 3 Contact Numbers 22080000 Rehabilitation Hospital Karen Grech 22082000 Memory Clinic, Rehabilitation Hospital Karen Grech 22081826 Dementia Helpline 22788800 ?entru Servizz Anzjan 21224461 St. Vincent de Paul Residence, ?|al Luqa 22589393 CommCare 21224461 Paul Cuschieri Activity Centre, St Vincent De Paul 25450000 Mater Dei Hospital 22589301 Dementia Intervention Team CONTACT A PROFESSIONAL If you have Question or need help, Contact us!
