Dementia and Delirium Solution Center
A sudden worsening of mental functioning is a strong sign of delirium. It can be the only clue to a life-threatening health problem, and it can accelerate dementia progression, which is why dementia caregivers need to know how to prevent, identify, and respond to delirium. Older adults with dementia are at high risk for delirium, especially during a hospitalization.
