A 61-year-old woman presented with a 10-month history of gait disturbance and a 7-month history of urinary incontinence. The Hasegawa dementia scale-revised score indicated cognitive impairment. Brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) indicated hydrocephalus with disproportionately enlarged subarachnoid space. This is usually considered a characteristic finding in idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH). Ventriculo-peritoneal shunting improved the patient's symptoms. Neurosarcoidosis was suspected as a cause of the hydrocephalus because of the abnormalities in the cerebrospinal fluid and the abnormal enhancement of the cauda equina, the leptomeninges of the brainstem, and the spinal cord, as seen on MRI with gadolinium enhancement...

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: Janus, the two-faced, Roman god of beginnings and transitions, is used as a metaphor to explore our personal narratives and our quantitative research on the experiences of older women with dementia in long-term care (LTC). Two research questions are addressed: (a) How do our quantitative data map onto our mothers' experiences? (b) What lessons do our mothers' experiences offer for the care of older women with dementia? DESIGN AND METHODS: Informed by a life-course perspective, we triangulate administrative data on 3,717 women with dementia receiving LTC in British Columbia, Canada, with personal narratives-the stories of our mothers who made the transition from home care into residential (nursing home) care...

We report a case of a 46-year-old man presenting with a progressive cognitive decline, ataxic gait, urinary incontinence for 4 months and neuroimaging consistent with normal pressure hydrocephalus. The atypical presentation of a progressively worsening dysphasia and a right hemiparesis dismissed as a vascular event 1 month earlier associated with normal pressure hydrocephalus prompted further investigations confirming neurosyphilis also manifesting as dementia paralytica. Treatment using consensus guidelines led to resumption of activities of daily living...

BACKGROUND: Patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) and/or Parkinsonism are affected by a complex burden of comorbidity. Many ultimately require institutional care, where they may be subject to the application of physical restraints or the prescription of antipsychotic medications, making them more vulnerable to adverse outcomes. OBJECTIVES: The objectives of this paper are to: 1) describe the clinical complexity of older institutionalized persons with PD; and 2) examine patterns and predictors of restraint use and prescription of antipsychotics in this population...

Idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH) is a syndrome characterized by ventricular dilation accompanied by a progressive triad of a gait disturbance, "dementia" and incontinence. We retrospectively evaluated cognitive profile, and its relationship with disease variables, in 64 iNPH patients. The iNPH group performed significantly worse than the control group on all neuropsychological tests, except for verbal memory (within the normal range). The patients were subdivided into four groups: group 1 (42%: global cognitive impairment); group 2 (24%: frontosubcortical dysfunction); group 3 (17%: isolated deficit of a single cognitive domain); group 4 (17%: no cognitive impairment)...

BACKGROUND: Age-associated decline in central cholinergic activity makes older adults susceptible to the harmful effects of anticholinergic (AC) medications; however, there is an inadequate understanding of the association and possible effects of AC drugs on cognition. This cross-sectional study examines the associations of AC medications on cognition among older adults with questionable cognitive impairment (QCI). METHODS: For this cross-sectional study, we used a multicenter database of community-dwelling older adults (N = 7351) aged 60+ years with QCI, from September 2005 to March 2014, as the baseline data...

AIM AND OBJECTIVES: To report the findings of a review of literature relating to the continence care of community-dwelling people with dementia in Europe. BACKGROUND: More than two thirds of people with dementia live at home and many experience continence problems. Incontinence is a significant contributor towards institutionalisation. Care and support is often inadequate or inappropriate and guidelines are lacking. This represents a failure to respect the human rights and dignity of this group...

BACKGROUND: Up to 90 % of nursing home residents with dementia suffer from urinary incontinence with adverse effects on the quality of life. Nurses are often insufficiently prepared for incontinence management and their knowledge is incomplete. Urinary incontinence management for people with dementia is complex due to the multifactorial nature of the disease and cognitive impairment. OBJECTIVE: This study explored the effects of an educational program and subsequent nursing case conferences on urinary incontinence and quality of life of nursing home residents with dementia...

An assumption is often made that incontinence is inevitable in older people, or those with dementia or other long-term conditions. However, research has highlighted strategies that can help them to remain continent. A working group was established to develop a resource to promote continence for people with dementia and long-term conditions. This article explores the resource's key messages, as well as the importance of changing how incontinence is viewed, and what health professionals and the public expect of continence services...
