Comunicación (Para Demencia) (Communication (for Dementia))

  • Las personas responden a nuestra postura corporal, expresión facial y tono de voz más que a las palabras. Nuestros buen estado de ánimo puede hacer que la persona que cuida permanezca más calma.

 

  • Es necesario que preste atención a las señales no verbales que la persona bajo su cuidado le transmite. Comprender sus sentimientos puede ser más importante que el contenido de la conversación. Reconozca los sentimientos de la persona bajo su cuidado siempre que sea posible.

Vascular Dementia

What is Vascular Dementia?


Vascular dementia is a medical term that describes a decline in cognitive abilities including memory, planning, reasoning, and judgment. When blood flow is reduced to any region of the brain, it becomes damaged quickly and recovers slowly, if at all. Damaged brain tissue causes the dementia symptoms. When symptoms are severe, they impair a person’s daily functioning and may affect their ability to live independently. In that case, family caregivers may need to help manage their loved one’s care.

阿尔茨海默氏病和看护 (Alzheimer’s Disease and Caregiving)

概述

阿尔茨海默氏病 (Alzheimer’s disease, AD) 是一种可引起大脑异常变化的疾病,主要影响记忆和其他心智能力。阿尔茨海默氏病是一种疾病,并非自然衰老的正常表现。记忆丧失是常见的首发症状。随着病情的发展,推理能力、语言能力、决策能力、判断力和其他关键技能逐步丧失,使得在没有他人(通常来说是家庭成员或朋友)帮助的情况下无法进行日常生活。个性和行为有时会发生不易相处的改变,但这并非必然会出现的症状。

阿尔茨海默氏病对被诊断为 AD 的人和那些承担看护责任的人都构成了真正的挑战,但这并不意味着不再有欢声笑语、亲朋相伴的时刻。AD 通常会有一个缓慢的发病进程,因而人们也就有时间适应诊断、提前规划、共度有品质的时光。

有近 1500 万的美国人为患有阿尔茨海默氏病或其他痴呆症的人提供无偿护理服务(阿尔茨海默氏病协会 (Alzheimer’s Association) 2011 年事实与数字)。阿洛伊斯·阿尔茨海默 (Alois Alzheimer) 博士是一位德国精神病学家和神经病理学家,他在 1907 年发现了首次发表的“早老性痴呆”病例,这一疾病现在被称为阿尔茨海默氏病。
