Dementia is not a disease in its own right, but a progressive and largely irreversible clinical syndrome. Dementia is a range of symptoms that occur as a result of damage or changes to the Brain, characterised by a widespread impairment of mental function. This damage may be due to Disease or natural processes such as ageing.
Although many people with Dementia can retain a positive personality, they can experience some or all of the following as there condition progresses. Memory loss, loss of language,disorientation,changes in personality,difficulties with daily living, self neglect, psychiatric problems such as apathy and depression and out of character behaviors such as aggression and sleep disturbances.
Mr Davies has teamed up with Cambridge Cognition, the leading UK developer of neuropsychological tests, to offer the touch screen-based assessment .
The assessment helps spot early memory problems, detection of which provides information to GPs to be considered when making a diagnosis. While memory problems might have a number of explanations, older people can be concerned that they might be an early sign of dementia.
We were very excited when we heard about CANTABmobile and were keen to offer this service, as we want to do all we can to assist people with memory impairment and, just as importantly, provide doctors with information that can help with the early detection of dementia.
