New Dementia Care Guide

A new guide on dementia care has been published by the National Council for Palliative Care.
The document is targeted at carers and those who work with people with dementia and it provides advice on how to help with pain and distress in people with the condition.
Chief executive of the Alzheimer's Society Jeremy Hughes stated that pain can often go unrecognised in people with dementia, while evidence shows that the neurodegenerative condition often goes untreated.
"This useful guide highlights key ways to identify and address signs of distress and pain in a person with dementia, helping carers to look after people with the condition," he said.
It was noted by Mr Hughes that there are currently 800,000 people living with the condition in the UK and this number is likely to grow in the coming years.
Scientists from universities in Germany and Switzerland recently published research claiming targeting inflammation could have benefits for individuals who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.
