Preventive activities in older age
With people aged >65 years, clinicians should be alert to the symptoms and signs of dementia. These may be detected opportunistically and assessed using questions addressed to the person and/or their carer (C). Depression and dementia may co-exist. When a person has dementia, adequate support is required for the person, carer and family. Counselling and education are important. Management priorities will vary from patient to patient, but there may be a need to consider medical management of dementia, behaviour and comorbidity, legal and financial planning, current work situation, driving, and advance care planning.59
