This is an educational program specifically produced to assist nursing care staff in understanding and caring for people with dementia. Supported by comprehensive notes the program analyses the changes that occur within the body and helps to explain how to communicate with people with altered behaviour. Dementia is an illness that impairs brain functioning. There are many kinds of dementia. Alzheimers disease accounts for 50% of cases. The five segments of this program cover all aspects of the disease including, the affect of the disease on the brain, practical tips on how to make the best of a patient and how to get the most out of nursing them. Information is revealed through interviews with academics, with the families of victims of the disease and with team nursing staff. Families and nursing staff tell of their difficulties with clients and colleagues, and how they cope. Common problems of depression, wandering, changes in behaviour, agitation and aggression are dealt with as the later stages of the dementia develop. The program is presented by Georgie Parker.
