What is Dementia?

Dementia is a brain condition, which causes a gradual loss of mental ability, including problems with memory, understanding, judgement, thinking and language. It is incurable and ultimately terminal. But early diagnosis can help manage the condition and improve people’s lifestyles. Raising awareness about the condition can help people recognise the signs and symptoms and encourage them to visit their GP more quickly.

Dementia can be assisted with dementia care which is what Churchill offers keeping loved ones at ease within a known environment at home safe with dementia home care.

What are the symptoms of dementia?

Dementia is progressive and as such symptoms may gradually get worse over time.

How is dementia diagnosed?

If you’re worried about your memory or think you may have dementia, it’s a good idea to see a GP.

If you’re worried about someone else’s memory problems, encourage them to make an appointment with a GP and perhaps suggest that you go with them.

Getting a diagnosis gives you and your family the best chance to prepare for the future.

With treatment and support from healthcare professionals, family, and friends, many people can lead active, fulfilling lives with dementia.

What to expect when you see a GP

A GP will ask about your symptoms and other aspects of your health.

They’ll also ask if you’re finding it difficult to manage everyday activities such as:

  • washing and dressing (personal care)
  • cooking and shopping
  • paying bills

It may be a good idea to take a family member or friend at your GP appointment, so they can describe any changes or problems they’ve noticed. They could also help you remember what was said at the appointment if this is difficult for you.

The GP will do a physical examination and may organise tests, such as a blood test and urine test.

You’ll also be asked to do a memory or cognitive test to check any problems with your memory or ability to think clearly.

What to expect after diagnosis

After you’ve been diagnosed with dementia, Your GP should arrange to see you from time to time, to check how you’re managing.

The memory service where you were assessed may also continue to see you in the early stages. During a follow-up appointment with a GP, or another healthcare professional, they’ll check how the dementia is progressing and if you have any new care needs.

Ongoing appointments are also a chance to talk about your plans for the future, such as Lasting Power of Attorney, to take care of your future welfare or financial needs, or an advance statement about your future care. The GP and the specialist may also jointly prescribe medicines that may help some of the symptoms of dementia. Furthermore, you could have a carer visiting to assist you with dementia care.
