Conference Highlights
Track 1: Dementia - Alzheimers and Vascular Dementia
Alzheimers is a kind of dementia that causes dilemma with memory, thinking and behaviour. This mainly happens
due to the disruptions caused in nerve cells within the brain. The brains of individuals with Alzheimer disease have
an abundance of 2 abnormal structures: amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles that are product of misfolded
proteins. This can be very regular in certain regions of the brain that are necessary for memory. Another main
feature of Alzheimers disease is the loss of connections amidst cells. This results in diminished cell operate and
Track 2: Neurodegenerative Diseases
Neurodegenerative disease is an allied term for a range of conditions which primarily affect the neurons in the
brain and are incurable and attenuate conditions that dynamically result in degeneration or death of nerve cells.
Examples of neurodegenerative diseases include Dementia, Alzheimers,
Parkinsons, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and Huntingtons disease. The
most banal kind of neurodegenerative disorder which people are facing is
Dementia is a group of conditions characterised by wreckage of at least
two brain functions, such as memory loss and judgment. The deficit
of brain function is stern enough that an individual cannot do normal
activities and leads to such an extent that it interferes with a persons
lifestyle. Additionally, some individuals with dementia cannot manage

Dementia Care

their emotions. The occurrence of dementia increases emblematically with increasing age. However, its not a standard part of
aging. Many people live into their 90s beyond with nil signs of dementia.
Track 3: Dementia Care Research
Amongst the induced and later stages of dementia an individual often involves challenging behavioural problems such as anger,
sadness, paranoia, confusion and fear that can further result in oppositional, aggressive and sometimes violent actions.
Although there is currently no cure for dementia and no way to stop the underlying death of brain cells, but dementia research
has shown that there is still a leeway to improve the essence of life of people living with dementia by providing a supportive
environment to them. An individuals centred care is considered important which characterises a clear perceptive of the
individual and giving consideration to their cultural background, personal history, social and family networks and preferences for
activities in designing their care.
Track 4: Dementia Care Practice
Diagnosing dementia and Alzheimer is generally difficult, particularly in the initial stages. However diagnosis assessment
incorporates medical and patient history to rule out different possible causes. Therefore numerous diagnostic procedures
are needed which further includes neurological and physical examination related to blood and urine tests, Mental status
assessment to work out the level of mental deterioration, Brain scans (CT Scans and MRI), Caregiver interview to see the level of
dependency, Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) can also be recommended.
Aside from these diagnostics, dementia patient needs reassurance and support from the people closest to them - including their
caregivers, friends and family to help the patient to reminisce their sense of existence and feelings of self-worth.
Track 5: Neurological Nursing
Neurological Nursing is a very provoking nursing specialty which deals with assessment, nursing diagnosis, and management of
many neurological disorders for which care practitioners provide patient care regarding neurological disorders such as trauma,
brain injuries, dementia, stroke, seizures, tumours, headaches, infections and aneurysms, as well as other neurological intricacies.
Talking about dementia, it encircles many different conditions and is apparent by a loss of cognitive abilities affecting
attention, memory, linguistics, reasoning and problem-solving skills that interfere with daily activities. It is caused by brain cell
Neurological care practitioners commit to give compassionate care to patients suffering from neurological diseases including
dementia and Alzheimer, from diagnosis to treatment and beyond.
Track 6: Person living with Dementia
Surviving with dementia from conditions such as Alzheimers and related disorders can have an ample of emotional, social,
psychological and practical impact on a person. Dementia sufferer finds that their mental abilities are declining, for instance,
difficulties to remember things, think clearly, communicate with others, or
take care of themselves and often feel vulnerable and need a great deal of
reassurance and support.
Track 7: Age and Dementia
Neurocognitive disorders accounts a class of mental state disorders that
essentially affect learning, memory, judgement, and cognitive behaviour,
dementia, and delirium. Theres no set age for these disorders to happen but
it has been found that age-associated memory impairment and dementia
increases typically with increasing age. Geriatrics scrutinised and stated that
people facing dementia whose symptoms started before the age of 65 are often

Dementia Care

considered as younger people with dementia or as having young-onset dementia and those before the age of 65 are consider
under early onset dementia or working age dementia category.
Track 8: Factors influence Dementia
Dementia is the case that people over 60 fear the most. The most common factors which enhances the risk of developing
dementia includes ageing, accumulation of ApoE, Alcohol use, Genetics, Down syndrome, Atherosclerosis, Depression, stroke,
Diabetes, Hypertension, Mental illness, smoking, Unhealthy diet, Head injuries and many more.
There is no proper cure for dementia; yet medication (including cholinesterase inhibitors containing Donepezil-Rex) and non-drug
treatments could give some comfort. However, dementia is not inexorable as we age and there is a lot we can do to dwindle the
chances of mellowing it.
Track 9: Diagnosis and Prognosis of Dementia
Dementia is not a disease; its actually a comprehensive term that portrays a wide range of symptoms related with a drop in
memory or thinking skills severe enough to turn down a persons aptitude to perform everyday activities.
No single test can disclose if someone is demented or not however, Doctors or physicians can almost rules out if a person has
dementia using medical evaluations which comprises of medical history, mental status testing (Mini-mental state examination,
Mini-Cog test) , physical and neurological exams, blood tests and brain imaging (CT Scans and MRI).Though treatment for
dementia is entering an energising stage, following many new medications depending upon the pathogenesis of Alzheimers
Track 10: Animal Models and Translational Medicine
Dementia is a syndrome with eccentric memory loss and impaired ability to recall events from the past often characterized by
Alzheimers disease. Animal models for dementia or Alzheimer is important to think about the human phenotype and what is
being modelled in terms of the animal phenotype. Animal models of Alzheimers disease or dementia, based on the genetics of the
disease and the closely related front temporal dementia, replicate at least some of the pathology.
Researchers have been successful at modelling very specific aspects of Alzheimer in the mouse for instance plaques, tangles.
Multiple approaches have been adopted to create reliable animal models ranging from rodents to non-human primates, where
the animals are exposed to a predetermined injury or causing genetic ablation across specific regions of brain suspected to affect
learning functions.
Track 11: Biomarkers in Dementia
Experts believe that biomarkers offer most promising paths to diagnose Alzheimers or dementia. A biomarker is something that
can reliably indicate the presence of disease.
Certain possible biomarkers are being studied for their strength to indicate
initial stages of Dementia or Alzheimers disease such as including betaamyloid and tau levels in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and brain changes
detectable by imaging. However, three biomarkers have been well-established
and validated internationally to diagnose AD in CSF with ELISAs: -amyloid
(142) [A (142)], total tau and phospho-tau-181
Track 12: Amyloid Protein in Dementia
All cells are like minute factories, producing thousands of proteins with precise
functions to keep the cells viable. A flaw can occur if a protein is altered, or
if excess or too little is formed. Sometimes, the consequences are so severe
that a cell dies. Neuron ruination is the chief cause of dementia and is often

Dementia Care

associated to malfunctions in the connection system that a neuron needs to survive.

Dementia is associated with accumulation of two proteins amyloid and tau - into plaques and tangles in the brain. Betaamyloid accumulates as plaques in Alzheimers disease or dementia and is an endorsement of the disease. Tau compiles into
tangles (known as neurofibrillary tangles or NFT). And further disrupts the structure and communication within the nerve cells,
leading to cell death.
Track 13: Neuropathology
Dementia is among the most typical neurodegenerative diseases which specifically arise due to neuron death. It is now becoming
evident that neurodegenerative diseases have a biochemical basis. Many neurodegenerative diseases are inherited. Their genes
are known and DNA-based diagnosis (including prenatal diagnosis) is available. Loss of neurons is accompanied by specific
histopathological findings such as Alzheimers plaques and Lewy bodies. Some neurodegenerative diseases engage specific
anatomical systems or adjoining sets of neurons.
Track 14: Neuropharmacology
Dementia is a common clinical phenomenon; however, management of the coexisting illnesses remains incomplete.
Neuropsychiatric turmoil is one of the clinical characteristics of Dementia. Traditionally, this turmoil has been managed with
neuroleptics or benzodiazepines but accounts serious side effects. With the advancement in the neuropharmacology field, many
new-fangled medications came into existence. Donepezil is a piper dine based reversible, non-competitive cholinesterase inhibitor
and proved beneficial for the management of symptoms of Alzheimers disease covering dementia, a disease in which cholinergic
pathways in the cerebral cortex and basal forebrain are well known to be compromised.

Track 15: Therapeutic Approaches towards Dementia

There are a numerous ways to categorise interventions in dementia care, for instance, by the kind of treatment approach used.
The chief grouping is by the therapeutic goal, with three considerable spheres recommended: the maintenance of function,
including cognitive functions, the management of behaviours that challenge and the reduction of comorbid emotional disorders.
The range of non-pharmacological interventions in dementia care is ample and would include the everyday interactions of carers
with the person suffering from dementia, the effect of the physical and social conditions and all manner of therapies, ranging
from art sessions to contact with animals.
