Making a difference in the dilemma of delirium and dementia
Presented by Dr Hannah Seymour and Anthea Crawford
With an estimated 450,000 Australians living with dementia, 41, 000 of those in Western Australia, it has been described as the greatest health challenge of our time. But while researchers work on unlocking better treatments and a possible cure, what can we do here and now to prevent delirium and dementia, and how can we better care for those living with these conditions?
Dr Hannah Seymour is a consultant geriatrician and Medical Director at Fiona Stanley Fremantle Hospitals Group. Dr Seymour works clinically in orthogeriatrics where she has a passion for improving care for hip fracture patients and outcomes in all aged care services.
Anthea Crawford is the Nurse Unit Manager for the specialist aged care ward at Fremantle Hospital. Anthea brings decades of nursing experience, compassion for patients and their families and a practical focus to delirium and dementia.
