With the many stigmas specific to older adults with mental health disorders, as health professionals, it is important to challenge negative attitudes that may influence older adults and families to neglect their cognitive health changes, resulting in delay in diagnosis and treatment. In addition, the effect on abuse is promising but more work is required for confirmation of this effect. Early diagnosis will be key to tackling dementia. Subjects’ heart rates were lower in offices with the glass windows than in those with plasma windows and blank walls.39 It seems that artificially represented nature is not an effective substitute for directly perceived nature as it does not provide equivalent benefits and positive experiences.

These strokes, also known as infarcts, reduce blood flow to brain tissue, causing the death of brain cells. Men, especially younger men, are more likely than women to have a head injury.

Local commissioning arrangements should decide the activity levels for the liaison service. It involves looking at the antecedents (A), behavior (B), and consequences (C) associated with an event to help define the problem and prevent further incidents that may arise if the person's needs are misunderstood. [67] Currently, no medications have been shown to prevent or cure dementia. [68] Medications may be used to treat the behavioural and cognitive symptoms but have no effect on the underlying disease process. [4] [69] Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors, such as donepezil, may be useful for Alzheimer disease [70] and dementia in Parkinson's, DLB, or vascular dementia. [69] The quality of the evidence however is poor [71] and the benefit is small. [13] No difference has been shown between the agents in this family. [72] In a minority of people side effects include bradycardia and syncope. [73] As assessment for an underlying cause of the behavior is a needed before prescribing antipsychotic medication for symptoms of dementia. [74] Antipsychotic drugs should be used to treat dementia only if non-drug therapies have not worked, and the person's actions threaten themselves or others. [75] [76] Aggressive behavior changes are sometimes the result of other solvable problems, that could make treatment with antipsychotics unnecessary. [75] Because people with dementia can be aggressive, resistant to their treatment, and otherwise disruptive, sometimes antipsychotic drugs are considered as a therapy in response. [75] These drugs have risky adverse effects, including increasing the patient's chance of stroke and death. [75] Generally, stopping antipsychotics for people with dementia does not cause problems, even in those who have been on them a long time. [77] N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor blockers such as memantine may be of benefit but the evidence is less conclusive than for AChEIs. [78] Due to their differing mechanisms of action memantine and acetylcholinesterase inhibitors can be used in combination however the benefit is slight. [79] [80] While depression is frequently associated with dementia, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) do not appear to affect outcomes. [81] [82] It is recommended that benzodiazepines such as diazepam be avoided in dementia due to the risks of increased cognitive impairment and falls. [83] There is little evidence for the effectiveness in this population. [84] There is no solid evidence that folate or vitamin B12 improves outcomes in those with cognitive problems. [85] Statins also have no benefit in dementia. [86] Medications for other health conditions may need to be managed differently for a person who also has a diagnosis of dementia.
