Q&A: Why would my 85 yr old father exhibit extreme dementia since his broken hip six weeks ago?





Query by Ohshunvu: Why would my 85 yr outdated father exhibit severe dementia because his broken hip six weeks ago?
He see’s snakes coming out of the walls and thinks that he is fighting in WWII again. He does not keep in mind his grandsons and has no clue where he lives. Blood perform was drawn, urine also, and there appears to be no signs of infection. When he fell he hit his head. His speech is slightly slurred as nicely. Even though the rehab center stated that this is what transpires to outdated men and women that have surgical treatment. Does each and every 80 something get dementia since they broke a bone?

No, dementia doesn’t come from broken bones, it comes with age. Not absolutely everyone that old gets it. I’m sorry that your grandfather has it.
All you can do is cope and be there for him.

Online Memory Test

    What take an online memory test?:

  • Again, it must be reiterated that forgetfulness is something that people usually ignore, but it is often the first sign of Alzheimer's disease.
  • An online memory test gives a rough estimate of how good a person's memory is. Most of these tests can be are free and can be completed in under 30 minutes.
  • A low score on a memory test may indicate that a person has a memory problem.
  • it is important to note that these tests are not meant to be diagnostic. Only a physician can determine whether a person has Alzheimer's disease.
  • There are two main types of online memory tests, visual and verbal. A verbal test gives a person a sequence of words to remember. A visual test gives a person pictures or numbers to remember.

Many people would have found that they have Alzheimer's disease earlier if they would have taken an online memory test. Alzheimer's disease is a condition that causes the brain cells to deteriorate. As a result of the lost brain cells, a person will experience a decline in mental function. Other symptoms of Alzheimer's disease include: depression, anxiety, stubbornness and social withdrawal. A person with Alzheimer's disease may also have the tendency to wander and get lost.

Alzheimer's disease most often occurs in people who are in their 40s and 50s. However, it is important to note that it is possible for people who are younger than 40 to develop this condition. Researchers have also found that people who have certain illnesses such as high blood pressure and diabetes are also at an increased risk for developing this condition. Additionally, women and those who have a family history of Alzheimer's disease are more likely to develop it.

The symptoms of Alzheimer's start off mild and then get worse as the condition becomes more advanced. Because the symptoms of this condition are initially mild, they can easily be overlooked. For example, a person may attribute his or her forgetfulness to getting older. That is why people who are becoming increasingly forgetful should consider taking an online memory test.
