types of dementia

Oh my goD but imagine black hat during April fool's day. Trying to "prank" everyone but having the "prank" be way more dangerous than it was supposed to be. IMAGINE THE POSSIBILITIES

  • “There is ONE extremely powerful and deadly bomb in this room. There are also 99 completely fake bombs! You have, hmm, three minutes? seems about right.”
  • Dr. Flug starts crying when Dementia suggests they figure out which bombs are fake by biting them.
  • Flug eventually finds and disarms the correct one (he made it after all.) honestly most of them arent surprised by his normal April Fools Day “pranks” (read: life-threatening traps) anymore.
  • What none of them expect is the Opposite Day prank.
  • BH acts nice for a day and it’s fucking terrifying. He’s smiling and chill and doesn’t even care when Flug’s latest project breaks, or Dementia chases 5.0.5 around the house. Hell, he even hugs 5.0.5. Everyone is thoroughly creeped out. (BH considers it a huge success.)
  • there’s also the time when BH turned the entire fucking house upside down, or when he walked around with his head literally on backwards, or when he hid 5.0.5 in a parallel dimension for a day as a “prank”
The Visceral (Belly) Fat Diet

Want to gain weight and target your belly? Perhaps you are looking for a beer belly or a hanging belly or just want to outgrow your clothes quickly. Speak to any nutritionist and they will tell you that there is no way to target your fat gain to any specific region, this is true, with one exception – visceral fat gain, that is, belly fat. This is the fat that surrounds our internal organs, and there are certain steps you can take in your life and your diet to promote visceral fat gain.

It was on a late Friday night that Derek found Stiles standing on his doorstep. “Derek, I don’t know what’s happening to me.” Stiles finds himself turning to Derek for help when he can’t tell what’s real anymore.


It was on a late Friday night that Derek found Stiles standing on his doorstep. He’d been sitting out the front of his loft for a while, it seemed; legs curled up to his chin.

As he approached the boy, he realized something was very wrong when Stiles refused to meet his eyes, despite undoubtedly knowing that Derek had arrived.

He opened his mouth, still unsure what to say, but before he had the chance to speak, he was interrupted by a soft, uncharacteristic whisper.

“I don’t know what’s happening to me.”

Derek made him hot chocolate.

The boy curled into himself on the woolen couch- a house-warming present from Peter- and sipped gingerly from the mug.

“I can’t remember last night,” he confessed, fingers shaking against the mug’s handle. “I remember going to pick up Chinese take out and then…it’s like I feel asleep or something. Next thing I knew, it was morning.”

Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s is a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior. Symptoms usually develop slowly and get worse over time, becoming severe enough to interfere with daily tasks.

7 stages of the disease: (The stages don’t always fall into neat boxes, but they can be a guide and help you plan for your relative’s care.)

-Stage 1: Normal Outward Behavior
Asymptomatic. Only a PET scan can reveal whether he’s got Alzheimer’s.

-Stage 2: Very Mild Changes
At this stage, subtle symptoms of Alzheimer’s don’t interfere with daily tasks. This could include forgetting a word or misplacing objects.

-Stage 3: Mild Decline:
It’s at this point that you start to notice changes in one’s thinking and reasoning, such as:
Forgets something he just read
Asks the same question over and over
Has more and more trouble making plans or organizing
Can’t remember names 

-Stage 4: Moderate Decline
Problems in thinking and reasoning get more obvious, and new issues appear. 
Forget details about himself
Forget what month or season it is
Have trouble cooking meals or even ordering from a menu

-Stage 5: Moderately Severe Decline
The person might start to lose track of where he is and what time it is. Trouble remembering his address, phone number, or where he went to school. Confused about what kind of clothes to wear.

-Stage 6: Severe Decline
He might recognize faces but forget names. He might also mistake a person for someone else, for instance, thinking his wife is his mother. Delusions might a set in. They might need help to go to the bathroom.

-Stage 7: Very Severe Decline
Many basic abilities, such as eating, walking, and sitting up, fade during this period. Many people at this stage can no longer tell when they’re thirsty.

anonymous asked:

What are some charities you would like to see some BRF members to get involved with? Or what are some charities you particularly like or think are good in the UK?

It is always hard to choose this when asked, I think more needs to be done for those too poor to eat - becoming more and more a problem - so supporting food banks and other charities that help with that. 

Also diabetes, both types, dementia including Alzheimers, lesser talked of cancers as funding is good for breast cancer but there are some cancers that are still in the same place they were 50 years ago as they get no funding or attention at all!   

The cognitive and sensory impairments associated with Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia often result in difficulty eating. 

Eatwell bowls are designed with slanted bottoms that help food collect to one side for easy scooping. The interior of the dining ware is also bright blue in color, an uncommon hue for food which helps users with dementia identify food in their bowls with ease. Spoons are intentionally designed to hug the side of the dinnerware, making collecting food easier and preventing spillage. Handles for drinking cups and utensils are made to allow for easy gripping and stability.

The result of all these intentional elements working together is a dining set that has been found to allow users with dementia to consume 24% more food and 84% more liquid.

How to stop quizzing people with dementia in 5 steps

You know what it means to “quiz” someone with dementia, even if you don’t call it that. Quizzing means that you try to get your loved one with dementia to tell you something that you already know, or that you try to get them to remember something.

Here are 5 steps to get you out of the bad habit of quizzing:

1. Take the word “remember” out of your vocabulary. Unless you’re referring to something that happened years ago, such as, “Do you remember what your first date with dad was like?” don’t use the word. People with dementia have poor short-term memories. It’s not fair to try and force them to remember.

2. Understand that, in many types of dementia, the new information doesn’t even get stored in the person’s brain. So, when you’re asking someone to recall information, recognize that it may not even be available. Sometimes when it does get stored, the person will have trouble retrieving it. Dementia is a group of brain diseases, and, although these diseases can be frustrating, it’s important to recognize that.

3. When your loved one says, “You didn’t tell me that!” don’t respond with anger. Instead, respond with an apology. “I’m sorry,” you may say. “I must have forgotten to tell you about your doctor’s appointment today.” Although it’s frustrating, and you know that you did tell them, it’s easier to accept the blame than start a fight.

4. Stop asking what your loved one did today, ate for breakfast, or if they took their pills. Instead, ensure that someone is there to help them do these things. People with dementia should not live alone. They don’t have the capacity to keep themselves safe, and they won’t remember if they took their medications or not.

5. Pause—and then change your question to a statement. Before you ask about something that you know they did or did not do, pause. Think about what you’re going to say, and how it will affect them. Change, “What did you have for breakfast today?” to, “I’m glad you enjoyed your pancakes this morning.” If your loved one says, “I didn’t have pancakes!” you can just say, “Oh, my mistake.” Give them the information instead of asking for it.

Starkiller Science: Chapter 1

Summary: When two captains from the First Order ask you, a recently graduated doctor, to conduct a year-long study at the Starkiller base, you accept without realising just what it means to be employed by the enemy.  Quickly, you learn that not everything aboard the planetary base is about science, and your relationships with the upper echelons of the First Order will make the difference between life and death—particularly the relationship with a certain member of the Sith who has no idea what to make of you.

Characters: Kylo Ren, you/reader, General Hux, Captain Phasma, Finn, original male characters, original female characters, your cat

Ships: Kylo Ren x Reader

Word Count: 1599

“So, do you accept?”

You stared down at the contract that was on the coffee table, swinging an ink pen around in your fingers as you read through it once again. The words hadn’t changed; they weren’t going to.  But you felt some trepidation as you mulled over the second to last paragraph.

First Order authorities are not to be held accountable in case of injury, whether psychological or physical, nor death.  In case of death, next of kin shall be informed within 14 days.  Limited resources aboard base may result in immediate disposal of body within said time frame. All possessions of the deceased will be left for probate if not claimed within 31 days after informing next of kin.

think of the grunkle calendar like a zine, but with 12 pictures themed around months! it’s only $10 and all the proceeds go to the lewy body dementia association, i had to look up what that was but lewy body dementia is the second most common type of dementia after alzheimer’s disease, so its a good cause!

and look at all these great artists including me lol

ALSO if you’re worried about trying to explain a “sexy” calendar for 2 cartoon old men, it’s totally safe for work!! there’s no shipping, nothing explicit, i can’t guarantee that you wont find a shirtless grunk in there because i dont know what everyone drew but i can guarantee pants. if that guarantee isn’t good enough then hey, tuck it away and just treat it like a big, weirdly formatted zine with days and weeks on half of it

buy it here! without enough preorders it can’t get printed so go on!

Stiles was sitting on the hospital bed, having just gotten back from taking a few tests. He had collapsed at home and his dad found him laying there hours later after returning from work. He knew they were whispering behind his back and it was irritating him. Though he could tell they were testing for the same type of dementia that his mother had, the one that had killed her.

It didn’t help that he was still a little agitated from his fight with Lexi the day before. He wanted her to be with him now but doubted that she would show up. He looked down at his thumbs and bit his lip.

Just a thought

Dr Palmer clearly had Alzheimer’s and it was theorized after he was introduced that he was Wren’s father. For anyone who never read those theories and never thought of that connection it was based on the fact that they are both British and that Wren told Hanna his dad was in a place much like Radley. He explained to her what an ambiguous loss is and used a relative slipping into dementia as an example of it. Since Alzheimer’s is a type of dementia he could have been referring to his dad having it. It would also make sense given that kids tend to follow in their parents footsteps so if his dad was a doctor he would be more likely to be one himself. Now for the real reason of this post. I’m watching Run Ali Run which is A’s first episode back in season 5. Spencer went to Radley to see Eddie Lamb and when she got there Detective Tanner was there so she sat in a seat and covered her face with a magazine. I found the front page headline interesting. The magazine they decided to use for this scene happens to say “An end to Alzheimer’s” on the front of it along with “finding a key disease gene has triggered a race for the cure.” I find it interesting that they would use that magazine given how many people suspect Wren as A and the connection made to Dr Palmer. I’m not saying it’s a clue, I just find it interesting.
