Dementia is a term used to describe a group of symptoms that affects memory, thinking and social abilities.

According to many online sites, there are several early signs of Dementia which include the following:

  • Memory loss
  • Thinking speed
  • Language
  • Understanding
  • Mood
  • Loss of interest
  • Management of emotions

Studies note that Dementia can affect 1 in 14 people over the age of 65.

Types of Dementia can include:

  • Alzheimer’s
  • Vascular
  • Lewy Body
  • Frontotemporal
  • Mixed

Dementia is caused by damage or loss of nerve cells and their connections in the brain. It is not a single disease it is an overall term. Some risk factors for dementia cannot be changed such as age and genetics.

If a family member has been diagnosed with Dementia, Neuro Case Management can assist in determining whether they still retain capacity as they move forward by completing a Mental Capacity Report. This may need to be completed on an annual basis as the Client’s condition deteriorates. If Mental Capacity is not confirmed this will allow a trusted individual to organise an LPA with a Family Solicitor if required to ensure the Client’s health and wellbeing are maintained.
