ADELMAN, M.D., M.S., Penn State University College of Medicine, Hershey, Pennsylvania MEL P. DALY, M.D., Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland Dementia is a common disorder among older persons, and projections indicate that the number of patients with dementia in the United States will continue to grow. Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia account for the majority of cases of dementia. After a thorough history and physical examination, including a discussion with other family members, a baseline measurement of cognitive function should be obtained. The Mini-Mental State Examination is the most commonly used instrument to document cognitive impairment. Initial laboratory evaluation includes tests for thyroid-stimulating hormone and vitamin B D ementia is a syndrome of gradual onset and continuing decline of higher cognitive functioning. It is a common disorder in older persons and becomes more prevalent in each decade of life. Approximately 10 percent of adults 65 years and older, and 50 percent of adults older than 90 years, have dementia. It is common for older patients to present to family physicians with concerns of memory loss. With an accurate and timely diagnosis of dementia, appropriate therapies can be initiated to reduce further cognitive decline. Therefore, family physicians play a key role in evaluating patients with suspected dementia. Given conflicting recommendations about the initial evaluation of patients with dementia, the availability of genetic markers for Alzheimer's disease, and new neuroimaging methods such as positron emission tomography, confusion may arise concerning how best to evaluate these patients.

I Just Don't Understand Your Mother Anymore

by Rosemary Dunne as told by Alberta McNamara
This is the story of one family's journey through their parents' Alzheimer experience... When Vera Orr disappears out of the blue, 38 hours pass before she is brought home. She is completely unaware of the enormous search and terrible trial everyone has been through. Vera simply says to her daughter "you look tired, let me get you something to eat." This is a wonderful collection of stories told with humour and love reflecting upon their experience. This is the story of one family as they discovered their matriarch had probably been covering up for several years before they joined her remaining eleven-year journey. A captivating story for every caregiver to learn from and enjoy.

10/66 Dementia Research Group
Less than one tenth of all population-based research into dementia has been directed towards the two-thirds or more of all people with dementia who live in developing parts of the world. Hence "10/66". 10/66 is a group of researchers who have linked together to try to redress this imbalance, encouraging active collaboration between research groups in different developing countries and between developed and developing countries. The 10/66 Group is part of Alzheimer's Disease International and is co-ordinated through Prof. Martin Prince from the Institute of Psychiatry, King's College, London.
Some history
The first meeting of 10/66 was at the annual conference of Alzheimer's Disease International held in 1998 at Cochin in Kerala, India. This was the first international dementia meeting ever to have been held in a developing country. India and other developing regions were particularly well represented. Since then, the 10/66 Group has held symposia at every annual ADI conference. Home About Alzheimer's Finding help Research ... About ADI

Dementia is a broad term for a range of conditions that involve loss of mental ability and so causes problems with memory, language, behaviour and emotions. Dementia is most common in the elderly. Around five percent of people over the age of 65 are affected to some extent.
About dementia
Dementia is caused by problems in the way the brain works. The brain is made of billions of brain cells or 'neurones', through which electrical signals pass. Normally these cells signal to each other through narrow gaps (synapses) with the help of chemicals called 'neurotransmitters'. Dementia is caused by neurones not working properly or dying. This often changes the levels of different neurotransmitters, which affect the function of the brain. Dementia is not a normal part of ageing. It is different from the mild forgetfulness that can occur in the elderly.

  • Dementia currently affects over 700,000 people in the UK Over 18,000 people with dementia are aged under 65 years Dementia affects one person in 20 aged over 65 years and one person in five over 80 years of age
Prevalence and incidence
When talking about demography it is important to distinguish between prevalence - the frequency with which dementia occurs in the population, and incidence - the number of new cases of dementia in a given time period. The well established prevalence rates for dementia in the UK are:
Age (years) Prevalence 1 in 1000 1 in 50 1 in 20 1 in 5 Projected growth in the UK

133. Dementia 13 (1963)
Review of the movie by Richard Scheib.
    DEMENTIA 13 aka THE HAUNTED AND THE HUNTED Rating USA. 1963. Cast Luana Anders (Louise Haloran), William Campbell (Richard Haloran), Bert Patton (Billy Haloran), Patrick Magee (Justin Caleb), Mary Mitchell (Kane), Eithne Dunn (Lady Haloran) Plot Members of the Haloran family gather at the ancestral Irish castle to attend the annual commemoration of the death of Kathleen, a daughter of the family who drowned in the lake six years earlier. After John Haloran dies of a heart-attack, his wife Louise dumps his body in the lake and then pretends that he has returned to New York, needing to maintain the pretence that he is alive in order to claim the family inheritance. She then begins an elaborate ruse to convince Lady Haloran that the late daughter is still alive and trying to communicate with her. But her deception is discovered and Louise is decapitated by an axe-wielding killer, who then proceeds to start killing the rest of the family. These days Francis Ford Coppola is one of the finest directors in the world with spectacularly imaginative, epic sized and occasionally topplingly indulgent works like The Godfather (1972) and sequels

Conclusion ADC consists of many conditions that can be of varying degrees and may progressively worsen. These conditions can easily be mistaken for symptoms of other common HIV-associated problems including depression, drug side effects or opportunistic infections that affect the brain like toxoplasmosis or lymphoma. Symptoms of ADC may include poor concentration, forgetfulness, loss of short- or long-term memory, social withdrawal, slowed thinking, short attention span, irritability, apathy (lack of caring or concern for oneself or others), weakness, poor coordination, impaired judgment, problems with vision and personality change. Because ADC varies so much from person to person, it is poorly understood and has been reported and described in many conflicting ways. This publication will shed light on some of these issues as well as the available treatments for ADC.
Possible Symptoms of Early Stage ADC
  • Difficulty concentrating Difficulty remembering phone numbers or appointments Slowed thinking Longer time needed to complete complicated tasks Reliance on list keeping to help track daily activities Mental status tests and other mental capabilities may be normal Irritability Unsteady gait (walk) or difficulty keeping balance Poor hand coordination and change in writing
