case of vascular dementia

vascular dementia Jim was 82 years old and had a diagnosis of vascular dementia. He spent a lot of time walking round the sitting room in the residential home he lived in,rubbing furniture with his hands in a very repetitive way. When staff talked to his wife about Jim’s interests and occupation, it emerged that as a young man he had been an apprentice French polisher, something he loved. The war interrupted his apprenticeship. The staff gave Jim polish and cloths and encouraged him to polish when he wanted to. The change in Jim was amazing. He was more communicative, less restless and smiled a lot.
