This guideline is concerned with the identification and treatment of, and care for, dementia as defined in the 10th edition of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) (World Health Organization, ).

Senile dementia, a biomedical approach: proceedings of the conference held in St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.A. on March H.S. Anderson, in Reference Module in Biomedical Sciences, Introduction. The term senile Senile dementia was used for many years to describe older individuals who suffered from cognitive decline, particularly memory loss.

This term actually reflects a long history of not understanding dementia, its causes, or its treatment. Herman T. Blumenthal, PhD, MD; The Aging Brain and Senile Dementia. Advances in Behavioral Biology, Vol. 23, Journal of Gerontology, Vol Issue 6, 1 NoveAuthor: Herman T.

Based on two years of intensive comparative ethnographic study in a nursing home in a Northeastern American city, The Person in Dementia dramatically contrasts the outcomes of two approaches to dementia care for elders with severely disturbed behaviors: a task-oriented approach based on a biomedical view of disease progression and a flexible Cited by: Senile dementia is one of the major health problems confronting mankind in this century.

To some extent the problem has, of course, always existed. The condition was sufficiently troubling to classical philosophers and jurists to have apparently provoked comments by Solon in approximately B. Medicines for dementia symptoms are important, but are only one part of the care for a person with dementia.

Other treatments, activities and support – for the carer, too – are just as important in helping people to live well with dementia.

Cognitive stimulation therapy. Senile dementia can be defined as a cholinergic insufficiency of the brain. A drug treatment which improves the glycolytic turnover may be an etiological theraphy concept enhancing cholinergic brain activity by increasing acetyl coenzyme A and choline acetyltransferase by: Continued.

Cognitive stimulation therapy (CST) is a structured program for groups of people with mild to moderate dementia. At meetings, the group does mentally engaging activities, like talking. The article presents author's suggestions regarding the need of a whole-systems approach for dementia care, by referring to his book "Dementia Care Nursing." He discusses his experience related to his mother's dementia and suggests that a wider social, psychological and biological approach should be used to meet the needs of patients of dementia.

The National Institute on Aging (NIA) has historically been concerned with the protection of human subjects. In Julythe NIA sponsored a meeting to update and supplement guide lines for protecting those participating in Federal research pro jects.

Although the basic guidelines had been in effect sinceit had been neglected to include the elderly as a vulnerable population. ISBN: OCLC Number: Description: xvii, pages: illustrations ; 27 cm.

Dementia is commonly differentiated along two dimensions: age and cortical level. The first dimension, age, distinguishes between senile and presenile dementia.

Senile dementia is used to describe patients who become demented after the age of 65, whereas presenile dementia applies to patients who become demented prior to that age.

Kitwood () acknowledged the apparently ‘overwhelming organicity’ of dementia, and although understanding the medical profession’s reasons for taking a technical approach to treatment as a result, felt that it was to the detriment of ‘personhood’ - ‘the standing or status bestowed upon one human being by others’.

The concept of early-onset dementia is itself problematic, and the book fails to make a strong case for it. As reading this volume clearly shows, there is at present very little that is different between early-onset and late-onset dementia.

In fact, those of us who run dementia clinics often deal with younger patients with : Constantine G. Lyketsos. As the essays in this volume show, conceptualizing dementia has always been a complex process.

With contributions from noted professionals in psychiatry, neurology, molecular biology, sociology, history, ethics, and health policy, Concepts of Alzheimer Disease looks at the ways in which Alzheimer disease has been defined in various historical and cultural book.

Through the early s, the medical community largely saw the condition as a rare, early form of dementia, distinct from memory loss in older people (senile dementia). But then neurologists, taking advantage of electron microscopy, began asserting that nearly everyone with memory loss had a version of the same brain deterioration.

The real increase, however, has been due to current diagnosis, whereas thirty years ago many patients would simply have been diagnosed as suffering from senile dementia.
