Description

People with Down’s syndrome enjoy a longer life expectancy now than they ever have before, and are therefore at greater risk of developing conditions associated with ageing, including dementia. The evidence base for the effects of dementia on people with Down’s syndrome is much smaller than that for older people generally, which means that learning disability professionals do not always recognise the condition and do not know to talk about dementia with clients who already have cognitive impairments, poor short-term memory or altered communication. As this module describes, professionals must make baseline assessments from which they can monitor changes in people’s behaviours. This involves finding out about clients’ lives in the past and present so that professionals can understand their preferences, how they communicate and what adjustments may be required in the future based on their levels of understanding. In addition, staff in learning disability and older persons’ services need information and education about the care of people with Down’s syndrome and dementia to increase their awareness, skills and confidence.

Objectives

After reading this module you should be able to:
1. Outline the early signs of dementia in people with Down’s syndrome, and summarise common reasons for the over and under-diagnosis of dementia.

2. Review the physical environment of a person with a learning disability to determine if it affects his or her ability to live well with dementia.

3. Assess the potential of your learning disability service or setting to improve the experiences of people with learning disabilities and dementia.

The module includes activities that can be shared in the workplace or with family carers with the aim of generating further discussion. Introductory information is provided as follows:

1. Dementia awareness.

2. Early changes that may indicate dementia.

3. Adaptations to the environment that may support an individual.

4. Similarities and differences in how dementia may be experienced by people with and without Down’s syndrome.
