Imagine… You are sat in unfamiliar clothing, beside a bed in a room with 3 other beds and lockers, you think it might be a hospital but it is strange and unfamiliar... You cannot recall how you got here... You don’t know what is about to happen, but you have a sense of dread... The smells, noises, sights and people – those who appear ill and those in uniform moving about with purpose – are all puzzling and unsettling... You recognise no-one... You are hungry and thirsty... Occasionally, you summon the courage to call out to people who walk close by. Many ignore you, those who stop and speak to you talk quickly in a language you can make no sense of, and then they swiftly depart... When you get up your movements are unexpectedly slow and laboured... Finally, when you try to seek a way out of this strange and unfamiliar place, a person in a uniform prevents you leaving… 1.3 © Greater Manchester West Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust

Identifying dementia 50% of dementia in hospitals is undiagnosed (NHS Confederation, 2010) Delirium (acute confusion) and depression are also common in older people in hospital. A diagnosis of dementia should be made only after a comprehensive assessment, which should include: – history taking – cognitive and mental state examination – physical examination and other appropriate investigations including blood tests – a review of medication Other tests may include: – Structural imaging – CT and MRI – Neuropsychological testing People assessed for the possibility of dementia should be asked if they wish to know the diagnosis and with whom they wish the diagnosis to be shared (NICE/SCIE Dementia Guidelines) 1.18 © Greater Manchester West Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust
