I would start by identifying what type of dementia
you're addressing. Is it Alzheimer, Pick, Diffuse Lewy
Body disease (probably more common than AD). Is it
progressive, static or treatable? Is it dementia or
delirium? I think you've been assigned a topic that
could take years to complete so suggest you discuss
narrowing it quite a bit. Keep in mind, please, that
just because someone has a Dx of AD doesn't mean they
actually have it - only about 30% of these diagnoses
the disease reaches the more advanced stages i.e. the
patient becomes parkinsonian with increased rigidity
but I find that swallowing problems often appear
earlier than they should because of the neuroleptic
and other pwychotropic medications that are still too
often used for behavioral control.
