'The report, published on Wednesday in the British Journal of Psychiatry, is a meta-analysis of 23 previous studies that followed nearly 50,000 older adults over a median of five years. The researchers found that depressed older adults (defined as those over age 50) were more than twice as likely to develop vascular dementia and 65 percent more likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease than similarly aged people who weren’t depressed.'

from the website:


'Life is an emotional journey. We all crave real human connection. This applies even more to people living with a dementia. People learn to trust emotions and rely more on themselves as feeling beings rather than thinking beings.


The heart of care is all about emotional care. This requires a shift in care services from solely providing task based care. The shift from ‘doing’ it to achieving real emotional connection is at the heart of ‘being’ person centred.'
