Black Links under construction Keywords: Introduction: Wandering among the elderly, especially those suffering from possible Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders (ADRD) , has only recently begun receiving much attention. Possible Alzheimer’s and Related Disorders includes Alzheimer’s Disease and the less well known dementia causing disorders of Multi-Infarct Dementia, Parkinson's Dementia, Symptomatic Hydrocephalic, Korsakoff’s Syndrome, Pick’s Disease, Huntington’s Disease, and Spongiform Encephalopathy. However, almost all studies have focused how these disorders cause wandering within the walls of an institution. Many other papers mention wandering, but only as a behavioral disturbance, management challenge in an institutional setting, or as a correlation with further loss of cognitive ability. Several other articles provide institutional care providers strategies for managing the wanderer.

Dementia Overview
Dementia Causes
Dementia has many different causes, some of which are difficult to tell apart. Many medical conditions can cause dementia symptoms, especially in older people.
  • The causes of dementia include various diseases and infections, strokes, head injuries, drugs, and nutritional deficiencies.
    All dementias reflect dysfunction in the cerebral cortex, or brain tissue. Some disease processes damage the cortex directly; others disrupt subcortical areas that normally regulate the function of the cortex.
    When the underlying process does not permanently damage the cortical tissue, the dementia may sometimes be stopped or reversed.
    In classifying dementias, medical professionals may either separate cortical or subcortical dementias or divide reversible and irreversible dementias.
Irreversible causes The main irreversible causes of dementia are described here. These damage brain cells in both cortical and subcortical areas. Treatment focuses on slowing progress of the underlying condition and relieving symptoms.
  • Alzheimer disease: This is the most common cause of dementia, accounting for about half of all cases. Alzheimer disease is at least partly hereditary in that it tends to run in families. (Just because a relative has Alzheimer disease, however, does not mean that another family member will have the disease.) In this disease, abnormal protein deposits in the brain destroy cells in the areas of the brain that control memory and mental functions. People with Alzheimer disease also have lower-than-normal levels of brain chemicals called neurotransmitters that control important brain functions. Alzheimer disease is not reversible, and no known cure exists. However, certain medications can slow its progress.

    What is Vascular Dementia?
    Vascular Dementia (VaD) is the result of a single or multiple strokes. A stroke is the main area of damaged brain caused by a loss of blood flow. Strokes can be large or small, and can have a cumulative effect (each stroke adding further to the problem). Strokes may alter the person's ability to walk, cause weakness in an arm or leg, slurred speech or emotional outbursts.
    How does Vascular Dementia affect the person?

    118. Dementia13
    Brief review (neutral), and rating.
    Dementia 13 After the death of John Halloran his wife Louise fears she won't get any of his inheritance after his mother dies. She forges a letter in his name and travels to the family castle in Ireland. While there we meet the excentric family and learn about the death of John's sister as a child. Soon there after we're introduced to a axe murder in whats best known as Francis Ford Coppola's directoral debut. Dementia 13 is an old fashioned slow paced black and white horror flick produced by Roger Corman. Coppola doens't show any of the style that we've come to expect from him, but he is able to create a some what creepy and bleak back drop for the film. Dementia 13 is a slasher/murder mystery type flick. But really its more like a character study in the vein of Psycho. The slashings take place about an hour into the flick and there is only two that I counted. The murder mystery really isn't a mystery at all.
    What we have is a fairly decent flick with a cool moment here and there. Dementia 13 moves slow and doesn't give the viewer much to keep them interested. If you're a murder mystery fan or interested in seeing an early Coppola film I'd say check it out. But you gorehound slasher freaks will most likely find Dementia 13 too slow and plot heavy for your bloody taste, even though there is a decapitation. I found the film to be some what enjoyable as a time waster. MY RATING: home message board guest book

T he prevalence of dementia is expected to increase dramatically in future years as life expectancy continues to increase and the baby-boomer population ages. The cumulative incidence of Alzheimer's disease has been estimated to be as high as 4.7 percent by age 70, 18.2 percent by age 80 and 49.6 percent by age 90. Proposed risk factors for dementia include a family history of dementia, previous head injury, lower educational level and female sex. Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia; many of the remaining cases of dementia are caused by vascular disease and Lewy body disease. Vascular disease and Lewy body disease often occur in combination with Alzheimer's disease. See editorial
