This is an awareness raising campaign.
Delirium is a condition causing acute mental confusion. Although anyone can experience delirium, those who are most vulnerable include those living with dementia, the elderly or frail.
Delirium is a common condition however it is largely under recognised.
The main things to look out for are whether the person is experiencing fluctuations in their mood or alertness. Are they becoming agitated or aggressive? Or are they withdrawn or sleepy? Other symptoms include hallucinations, delusions or difficulty in following a conversation.
Delirium can be a frightening experience for both the individual and their carers.
Early detection significantly reduces risk during and following the condition.
#icanpreventDelirium collaborating across the globe and with idelirium.org for World Delirium Day to raise awareness of this distressing condition.
