Dementia Alzheimer’s Disease Nursing Care Plan

Alzheimer’s is a disease where protein ‘plaques’ and ‘tangles’ develop in the structure of the brain, leading to the death of brain cells. There is also a shortage of some important chemicals in the brain, which are essential to the transmission of messages within the brain.

It is a progressive disease, which means that gradually, over time, more areas of the brain may become damaged. In the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease there may be lapses of memory and problems finding the right words. As the disease progresses, there may be increased confusion and forgetfulness.

The person with Alzheimer’s may experience mood swings, feel sad or angry, or scared and frustrated by their increasing memory loss. They may become more withdrawn, due either to a loss of confidence or to communication problems and have difficulty carrying out everyday activities. No two people are likely to experience Alzheimer’s disease in the same way.

This care plan sets out a clear explanation of the resident’s issue, and will quickly guide the nurse or carer through the process of preparing a comprehensive, sensitive, individual person centred Care Plan.
