Question and answer
explain how other factors can cause changes in an individuals condition that may be attributable to dementia
Dementia is not a specific disease. It is a descriptive term for a collection of symptoms that can be caused by a number of disorders that affect the brain. [ People with dementia have significantly impaired intellectual functioning that interferes with normal activities and relationships. They also lose their ability to solve problems and maintain emotional control, and they may experience
personality changes and behavioral problems such as agitation, delusions, and hallucinations. While memory loss is a common symptom of dementia, memory loss by itself does not mean that a person has dementia. Doctors diagnose dementia only if two or more brain functions - such as memory, language skills, perception, or cognitive skills including reasoning and judgment - are significantly impaired without loss of consciousness. There are many disorders that can cause dementia. Some, such as AD, lead to a progressive loss of mental functions. But other types of dementia can be halted or reversed with appropriate treatment. With AD and many other types of dementia, disease processes cause many nerve cells to stop functioning, lose connections with other neurons, and die. In contrast, normal aging does not result in the loss of large numbers of neurons in the brain. ]

explain the process of reporting possible signs of dementia within agreed ways of working.
Weegy: Diagnosis of dementia Although there are some brief tests, a more reliable diagnosis needs to be carried out by a specialist, such as a geriatric internist, geriatric psychiatrist, neurologist, neuropsychologist or geropsychologist. [ The following tests are commonly used: AMTS (Abbreviated Mental Test Score) A score lower than six out of ten suggests a need for further evaluation. MMSE (Mini Mental State Examination) A score lower than twenty-four out of thirty suggests a need for further evaluation) 3MS (Modified Mini-Mental State Examination) CASI (Cognitive Abilities Screening Instrument) It is important that the patient's score is interpreted in context with his socio-economic, educational and cultural background. The tester must also factor in the patient's present physical and mental state - does the patient suffer from depression, is he in great pain? ] (More)
