Talk:Motivation and emotion/Book/2013/Dementia and emotion
Hi I thought I would give you some feedback on your chapter as you are making the finishing touches :) firstly you mention in the third paragraph “data from 2010 showed… and there is no reference for this statement. I also see other statements that may need evidence to back them up such as “the onset of alzheimers is slow… it is most common forms of dementia… research has shown that feelings associated with depression etc (in emotional effects of dementia on carers)’. I’m not sure if you want to re-look this over to back up your claims more with research and evidence. Other than that, I think your chapter is really well written and expressed clearly. I enjoyed reading this, and your discussion flows well. Great layout and well done on getting a quiz in there! Best of luck Rashpocket (discuss • contribs) 09:01, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
I was doing some initial research on a topic I've been thinking about and thought this might document might be of use as its to do with caring for Alzheimer's patients. Motivation to Care If you want the whole article I can email it to you Kari2515 (discuss • contribs) 01:29, 1 September 2013 (UTC)
Hey Emma, not sure if you're planning on including some information about Dementia prevalence in Australia and the world or not, but I came across this article the other day that you may be interested in:
Prince, M., Bryce, R., Albanese, E., Wimo, A., Ribeiro, W., & Ferri, C. P. (2013). The global prevalence of dementia: a systematic review and metaanalysis. Alzheimer's & Dementia, 9(1), 63-75.
Nice work Emma! Woah! I also agree, the poem is a really nice touch, great to lighten up the heavy information. I'm going to steal that idea if it's ok with you? Might use some lyrics or something. You are make win! PatrickBateman (discuss • contribs) 03:50, 21 October 2013 (UTC)
Hey Emma! I was just thinking: I really like your poem, I reckon it would be great for you to include it or something similar in your multimedia presetation :) Also, not sure if you're aware but I think an image in your overview section isn't working/there's a bit of mark-up there.

FYI, check out and link to, as appropriate, the previous M&E chapter(s) on dementia as well as to material within the Caregiving and dementia project. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 21:01, 17 October 2013 (UTC)
Hi, Emma. I know that you are pretty much done however I thought this might be something you can add to the Carers section. It's an Inventory scale developed to asses the carers grief level at different stages of the disease MM-CGI-SF. You could also include it in the See Also.--Caitlin Malicki (discuss • contribs) 01:45, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
A quick look[edit source]
Thanks for your thanks for an earlier edit I made - it prompted me to check-in - the chapter is looking fabulous. Love the use of images - they are not easy to find for dementia. Quiz is also looking excellent as does overall structure and layout.
My main comment about content is to expand the emotional effects of dementia section. It could be useful to connect this the literature about challenging or problem behaviour (which arise largely due to cognitive/emotional deficits) which can also be understood more humanely as "unmet needs". There is some more info here: Caregiving and dementia/Topics/Behavioural and psychological symptoms.
Thanks James! I see your point, and am finding some good information on this subject! :) - EmmaP
Pass time - Living with Alzheimer's video[edit source]
Check out this recent poignant video - Pass time - Living with Alzheimer's - in many ways it models an emotionally mature but deeply honest response from a family carer of someone with dementia. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 22:50, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
hey, have you considered going into other types of dementia such as alcohol related dementia: Korsakoff's syndrome and Wernicke's encephalopathy. that could be something to look into and the differences.Thosecows (discuss • contribs) 03:56, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
Hi, I really like your chapter, it is well done and easy to read, on the whole, some sentences involved a double take but they were minimal. I changed helplines to help lines as I feel it reads better as two words or you may want to hyphenate it. In the coping section I also changed effects of dementia to symptoms as it seems to fit better. I am doing Alzheimer's and motivation and have included your page in my see also and may do a link to it within my section on motivation loss due to depression and apathy. In your preventing dementia section you could also link to my page as that is what mine is mostly about but thats up to you. I really like the poem at the end and having experienced familiar Alzheimer's it was very emotional for me and I think it has a good understanding type impact at the end. I also like the quiz, good addition.
Your word count is also over but only by 400 words and I think it reads pretty well the way it is now, I couldn't imagine getting rid of anything. Im not sure how strict james is gonna be on word count, and if we are allowed 10 per cent, then you fine :) Kari2515 (discuss • contribs) 04:59, 2 November 2013
