Behind Every Closed Door written by Gill McGill
Behind Every Closed Door, on the job first hand experience of what it’s like to grow old and suffer the denigration of age. Highly topical at the moment with the passing of ex- Prime Minister, Baroness Margaret Thatcher, documented to be a dementia sufferer.
This short story, Behind Every Closed Door, encapsulates all that is apparent when confronting a topic that no one cares to discuss first hand from an invited carer perception.
The trials of mankind aren’t far from the author’s view at any time and this short story, Behind Every Closed Door, tries to show the importance of care in the community – no matter what the personal cost.
Dementia is not merely a problem of memory. It reduces the ability to learn, reason, retain or recall past experience and there is also loss of patterns of thoughts, feelings and activities (Gelder et al. 2005).
Additional mental and behavioral problems often affect people who have dementia and may influence quality of life, caregivers and the need for institutionalization.
As dementia worsens individuals may neglect themselves and may become disinhibited and may become incontinent. (Gelder et al. 2005).
Depression affects 20–30% of people who have dementia and about 20% have anxiety.
Psychosis (often delusions of persecution) and agitation/aggression also often accompany dementia. Each of these needs to be assessed and treated independently of the underlying dementia.
