Memory, attention, thought, senses and movement, which the cerebellum lobe (right at the bottom of the brain next to the brain stem) is responsible for, can also be affected. Memory forming, organizing, storing and emotions, which the hippocampus lobe (small lobe in the middle of the brain) is responsible for, can also be affected. Q1.3) Explain why depression. Delirium and age related memory impairment may be mistaken for dementia. A) Depression, delirium and age related memory impairment may be mistaken for dementia because they share many of the same symptoms of dementia.
UNIT 4222-365 1.1 Range of causes of dementia Cells in the brain stop working, and the part of the brain that this occurs in will affect how that person thinks, remembers and communicates. The most common forms of dementia are Alzheimer’s disease and Vascular dementia. Alzheimer’s disease is caused by damage in certain areas of the brain. With time, it spreads and affects cells in other parts of the brain. The cause of the brain cells dying and the deterioration of the connectors is not fully known.
NCFE Level 2 Certificate in the Principles of Dementia care (600/6355/5) Unit 01: Dementia awareness 1.1 Explain what is meant by the term ‘dementia’. Answer: The term dementia' describes a set of symptoms caused by damage to the brain like confusion in a familiar place, loss of memory, changes in mood, and problems with thinking, reading, communication and reasoning. There are several types of Dementia. 1.2 Describe the key functions of the brain that are affected by dementia. Answer: The hippocampus this is the main area affected by Dementia it is responsible for memory forming, organizing and storing and emotions.
DEM 201 – Dementia Awareness. DEM 201.1 - Understand what dementia is 1.1 – Explain what is meant by the term “dementia”. “Dementia are the signs and symptoms caused as a result of specific diseases such as Alzheimer’s or a stroke that involve the damaging of brain cells; as the brain cells die the person with a dementia will lose their ability to do things they are used to doing as different parts of the brain are damaged. Dementia affects both older and younger people and the decline in the person will get worse as more brain cells are damaged or die.” 1.2 – Describe the key functions of the brain that are affected by dementia. The main areas of the brain that are affected by dementia in terms of causing difficulties with their functions are: * Frontal Lobe – This is the part of the brain that controls behaviour, movement, personality and the interpretation of what is around us * Parietal Lobe – This is the part of the brain that controls the language we use, spacial awareness and recognition of places, objects and people.
Unit 4222-237 Dementia Awareness Outcome 1 Understand what dementia is: 1.1 What is meant by the term ‘dementia’: The term 'dementia' is used to describe the symptoms that occur when the brain is affected by specific diseases and conditions. These include Alzheimer's disease and sometimes as a result of a stroke. 1.2 The key functions of the brain that are affected by dementia : Dementia is a condition of the brain which causes a gradual loss of mental ability, including problems with memory, understanding, judgement, thinking and language. In addition, other problems commonly develop such as changes in personality and changes in the way someone interacts with others in social situations. As dementia progresses, the ability of someone to look after themselves from day to day may also become affected.
DEM 201 Task 1 Design an information booklet explaining to relative of the individuals you support What is meant by the term dementia? The term 'dementia' describes a set of symptoms which include loss of memory, mood changes, and problems with communication and reasoning. These symptoms occur when the brain is damaged by certain diseases, including Alzheimer's disease and damage caused by a series of small strokes. Dementia is progressive, which means the symptoms will gradually get worse. How fast dementia progresses will depend on the individual person and what type of dementia they have.
Key functions affected by dementia are: distortion of the visual field, the perception of size, colour and shape of objects may not be recognised by the brain from what the eyes are actually seeing. Temporal lobe Located on the sides of the brain at about the same level as the ears. Key functions affected by dementia are: hearing, language, the formation of memories, recognising people and places. The Cerebellum Located at the base of the brain under the Occipital lobe. Key functions affected are balance and muscle co-ordination The Hippocampus Located in the temporal lobe of the brain.
Unit Dem 201 1.1 Dementia is used to describe the symptoms that occur when the brain is affected by specific diseases and conditions. Dementia is a chronic progressive problem of cognition which is failure of the brains functions. Dementia affects different parts of the brain and at different speeds. 1.2 The key functions that are affected by dementia are: Temporal lobe: - responsible for vision, memory, language, hearing, and learning. Frontal lobe; - responsible for decision making, problem solving, control behaviour.
Dementia Awareness 1.1 Explain what is meant by the term ‘dementia’. A chronic or persistent disorder of the mental processes caused by brain disease or injury and marked by memory disorders, personality changes, and impaired reasoning. 1.2 Describe the key functions of the brain that are affected by dementia. The key functions of the brain that are affected by dementia are the temporal lobe, frontal lobe, parietal lobe, occipital lobe, cerebrum lobe and the hippocampus. 1.3 Explain why depression, delirium and age related memory impairment may be mistaken for dementia.
The term dementia is used to describe a group of symptoms, a person with dementia is a person with a range of disabilities which can be more difficult to recognise than physical disabilities dementia is more of a generic term and includes a vast range of conditioms and there causes this is because dementia is more tham just memory loss it is also effects the cognitive function so things like remembering, comprehension, awareness, judgement etc this is due to damage or disease in the body more than what is expected from normal ageing. The key functions of the brain that are affected by dementia include the cerebrum, dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) affects the cerebrum. In DLB small, round lumps of proteins build up in the grey matter. These spheres harm nerve cells,
