The reason for choosing this model is:
I choose this module to learn more about dementia, and to improve my knowledge about this illness. From my knowledge and my previous background, I do not have that Idea about dementia. My practice in dialysis unit, and I was there for 2 years, and I just saw one case that came to the dialysis. From that point I identified the disease.
What happened is the following: In one day I received an admission for a lady who want to have a dialysis, came with her daughter. When I started my usual work like taking a history from the patient. I noticed something strange about my lady.
Mrs, Sara was a nice and lovely lady she was 79 years old. She was well looking and dressed well and walking well. Mrs Sara was unfamiliar with the place and she cannot recognize her name in the begin. About a dress and date of birth she was not that sure about it. So, I asked her daughter about Mrs., Sara wrong.
She said that her mother diagnosed with Alzheimer disease one year ago. Mrs. Sara came with her daughter to have a dialysis session. After that I started to have the patient history from the daughter. She said that her mother was behave normally and was out door person, she likes gather with the friend and family, moreover she was encouraging me to have a lot of parties. My mother was looking after her self well.
Between time and time, I noticed that there is something wrong with my mom. It had started with a change in temperament. she became progressively more irritable and quick to blame her husband for not doing the things which she said she had asked him to do.
In one day in our way to visit my sister because she got birth. My mother asked me where we are going, I thought that she is kidding me. But she was not actually I did not answer her question. When we arrived to my sister room my mother was not sure about my sister name, and about the reason for coming to the hospital. Then she started crying, in this time I recognize there is something wrong with my mother. In the next day I took my mom to neurologist doctor and he did an investigation then informed me that my mother has Alzheimer. Over the next few months her memory deteriorated progressively to a point where she forgot not only events but also the names of her children. She seemed lost in a world of her own and out of step with the world around her family.
