According to the journal Health Affairs, one-ninth of the population over the age of 65 and one-third of the population over the age of 85 suffers from Alzheimer’s disease in the U.S. Because of the broad impact of the disease in the elderly community, health care professionals need to be prepared to deal with the needs of patients with this illness. Along with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia affects a significant number of older adults.

Caring for dementia patients can be challenging for nursing professionals. If patients see multiple nurses during their stay at an institution, then a detailed nursing care plan for dementia is a necessity. The steps in developing a dementia care plan include the following:

Discussing the situation. NPs should discuss the changes patients are going through with them or their loved ones and understand how patients feel about their circumstances.

●      Developing a team. The team comprises not only nurses but also any individuals in the family who may be responsible for the patient’s care. Having everyone on the same page is important to ensure that the patient gets the care needed.

●      Determining the patient’s needs. Each patient is different and has specific needs. NPs should understand a patient’s history and diagnosis to develop a plan suited to the needs of the patient.

●      Creating the plan. NPs can use the information gathered in the previous steps to design a care plan that caretakers will follow. This plan will outline what was discovered and include individual notes for the specifics of each patient.
