The aim of this project was to identify the support required by registered nurses and unregistered healthcare support workers to provide palliative care for people with dementia in an acute hospital in England. A quantitative approach was taken and participants were asked to fill in a questionnaire. Data were collated and analysed to identify support needs and any emerging themes. Respondents were confident in identifying the different stages of dementia. There was less confidence in identifying a patient with dementia for palliative care referral compared with a patient without dementia...

In 2016 the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) published a guideline on oral health for adults in care homes in England. The author was a co-opted member of the NICE oral health for adults in care homes public health advisory committee. This article reviews the NICE guideline as it applies to care homes, and relates it to the results of a survey of oral care practice undertaken in a large care home organisation and the available research literature from the past 20 years. The literature and survey results suggest that, if translated into practice, the NICE guideline could do much to improve oral health for adults in care homes...

Alcohol has historically been regarded as harmless when taken in moderation. However, studies have shown that, in older people, even moderate alcohol consumption is associated with reduced brain total volume, increased ventricle size, and reduced grey matter in the frontal and parietal lobes.

It is refreshing to find a book that relates nursing practice to adult safeguarding in the way this does. Mainly written for nursing students, it incorporates NMC Standards for pre-registration nursing education and essential skills clusters, which are threaded throughout the book.

Sleep disorders often precede cognitive impairment by many years. This is partly because some degenerative diseases originate in the hypothalamus and brain stem, which means fragmented sleep, daytime napping and sleep-phase disorders are early signs of these diseases. However, recent research indicates that amyloid proteins are removed from the brain during deep sleep so poor sleep can increase the amyloid plaques seen in Alzheimer's disease. It is also known that sleep-disordered breathing can lead to hypoxia, increasing vascular dementia...

This is the best book I have read on dementia. It is an intricate and intense read, making it ideal for people who want to understand the complexity of brain failure. The author is funny and interesting in the analogies she uses to convey the science.

The ambulance crew tell me you have been admitted to the emergency department with a suspected femoral shaft fracture. I see a scared, frail older person, but I see a sparkle in your eyes that tells me how you made it to 101 years old.

There are more than twice as many people living in care homes in the UK than there are inpatients in NHS hospitals, yet there is much less research about how to provide the best care for these 416,000 residents.

Dementia with Lewy bodies, which is characterised by clumps of protein that develop inside nerve cells in the brain, accounts for 10%-20% of dementia cases. Cognitive symptoms start with visuospatial and executive functions rather than with memory. Psychiatric and behavioural features, especially hallucinations, sleep disturbances and apathy, are common and often present early in the course of the disease.

While research in hospitals on improving patient care and experience is well established, far fewer studies have been conducted into care homes. Yet, with 400,000 older people living in 19,000 independently owned care homes in the UK, there are many more beds in this sector than in the acute setting.
