Dementia: Is This Dementia and What Does It Mean?

Introduction

What does it mean when someone is said to have dementia? For some people, the word conjures up scary images of “crazy” behavior and loss of control. In fact, the word dementia describes a group of symptoms that includes short-term memory loss, confusion, the inability to problem-solve, the inability to complete multi-step activities such as preparing a meal or balancing a checkbook, and, sometimes, personality changes or unusual behavior.

Enfermedad avanzada: Aferrarse y dejar ir (Advanced Illness: Holding on and Letting go)

Introducción 


Nuestra cultura nos dice que debemos luchar fieramente contra la edad, enfermedades y la muerte: Tal como escribió Dylan Thomas “no te pongas dócil en esa noche importante,” Y de hecho es un instinto básico aferrarnos a la vida y a nuestros seres queridos. Sin embargo, a medida que una enfermedad avanza, “el luchar contra la muerte” con frecuencia comienza a causar un sufrimiento indebido, y en su lugar puede que “dejar ir” se convierta en la siguiente etapa.

老人失智症,看護和控制沮喪 Dementia, Caregiving, and Controlling Frustration-TC

看護的壓力 


護理患有阿爾茨海默病或相關失智症的人是具有挑戰性的,並且不時發生令人難以承受的狀況。感到沮喪是作為看護者所面對困難的一個正常和正當的情感回應。雖然一些壓力可能是作為看護者的日常的工作部分,但當看護者感到極度沮喪時, 可能對你或被看護者有嚴重的後果。沮喪和壓力可能影響你的身體健康, 或導致對你所愛的人在身體或語言上帶有攻擊性。如果你的看護工作情況導致你感到極度沮喪或憤怒,你可能需要探索一些應對的新技巧。 


當你沮喪時,分辨什麼在你改變的力量內和什麼不在你改變的力量內是很重要的。沮喪通常是由試圖改變不可控制的情況產生的。作為老人失智症患者的看護者,你會面對很多不可控制的情況。例如正常的日常活動(穿衣、洗澡和吃飯)亦可能成為你感到沮喪的來源。與失智症相關的行為,像漫遊或重複發問問題,更容易令看護者沮喪。不幸的是,你不能改變老人失智症患者的行為。 


當處理不可控制的情況時,你能控制一件事,那就是:你如何應對該情況。
