Living well with dementia in the Pellice Valley

Towards a Dementia Friendly Community LUSERNA SAN GIOVANNI Welcome to Luserna San Giovanni, the largest town in the Pellice Valley in terms of its residents. It comprises Luserna Alta, a medieval hamlet rich in history, San Giovanni with its sunny hills and rich vegetation which provide for pleasant walks surrounded by nature, and Airali, the town centre where one can access a number of useful services. It is my hope that you will find a warm welcome in our town, together with the help and responses to your needs as residents and visitors, as we embark on the important process of seeking to become a more dementia-friendly community. Mayor Duilio Canale

TORRE PELLICE Welcome to Torre Pellice, a small town of 4551 inhabitants, nestled between the mountains of the Pellice Valley. At less that 50km from Turin, Torre Pellice is the main centre of the Waldensian Church. Here religion, tradition, nature and culture merge to naturally form a sense of welcome and integration. It is a place to discover shops and businesses, art galleries, museums, libraries, and offices and services run by people who have been trained to be, and are, open to people with dementia. Mayor Marco Cogno

Dementia • What is dementia? Dementia is the collective term used to describe a number of brain diseases which cause cognitive degeneration and can bring about progressive memory loss, behavioural changes and difficulty carrying out the practical tasks in daily life. Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia (an estimated 60% of cases) but there are over 100 different forms. Currently there is no cure but reducing the stigma and fear surrounding dementia helps people to remain as active as possible (physically, cognitively and socially) and this can slow the progression of dementia and help them live better, for longer. Every person is different, and every dementia is different. The impact and development of dementia is highly individual and therefore, so is the appearance and progression of dementia symptoms. • The project ‘Out and About with Dementia’ This local and international project is a response to the expressed wishes of people with dementia and their caregivers to continue to live as normal a life as possible, for as long as possible, despite their difficulties. It seeks to create communities in the Pellice Valley (Italy) and Kortrijk (Belgium) which are better adapted to the needs and desires of people with dementia - people who desire to continue to go on holiday, on day trips, eat out and participate in community and family events and celebrations, as well as be able to do the things which form part of daily life. Currently there are barriers to their participation in these ‘normal’ activities. ‘Out and About with Dementia’ brings together people with dementia with community, tourism and leisure services and amenities to raise awareness about these issues and to reduce the barriers. • Why this brochure? This brochure is a product of the project ‘Out and About with Dementia’ and includes a list of collaborating services in the Pellice Valley involved in an awareness-raising program to improve their approaches, accessibility and environments for people with dementia. The project ‘Out and About with Dementia’ is part of an international movement developing Dementia-Friendly Communities, to promote understanding, and ensure that life does not end with a diagnosis of dementia.

THE SYMPTOMS • What are the symptoms of dementia? The most common symptom is memory loss, one of the many symptoms which may indicate the initial stages of dementia.

1. Systematic or unusual forgetfulness

Forgetting information recently received, such as dates or events. Asking for the same information more than once. Increased reliance on memory aids (lists or electronic devices) or on members of the family to do things that previously were managed independently.

2. Confusion and difficulty in daily life

Changes in the ability to follow the storyline of a TV program or make numerical calculations. Difficulty remembering a oncefamiliar recipe or keeping track of household bills. Difficulty concentrating. Difficulty driving the car to familiar places, managing money or remembering the rules of a game.

3. Disorientation in space or time 4.

Difficulty in finding or understanding words

Forgetting the date, the season and losing the passage of time. Forgetting where you are or how to get to a particular destination. Passing in front of a mirror and thinking there is somebody else in the room or not recognising your own reflected image. Difficulty following or participating in a conversation. Stopping mid-sentence and not knowing how to continue. Difficulty finding the right word. Using the wrong name for familiar objects or people. Difficulty reading, judging distances and in determining colours and contrast.

5.

Becoming confused, suspicious, depressed or anxious. Oversensitive or touchy at home, at work, with friends or in new situations or places. Taking less care of your cleanliness and hygiene and dressing inappropriately for the weather or occasion.

6.

PREVALANCE AND IMPACT OF DEMENTIA....

4

• Prevalence and number of people with dementia: Dementia has an impact on us all. Currently 47 million people in the world have dementia. It is estimated that this will triple by 2050. Dementia is the greatest cause of disability in Italy. The risk of dementia increases with age and it is more common in women. Italy has one of the oldest populations in the world and dementia principally occurs in people over 65: over 1,241,000 people live with dementia in Italy of whom an estimated 76,000 live in the Piedmont Region. This equates to several hundred people with dementia in the Pellice Valley. It is estimated that 40% of these people have not received a diagnosis. • Why is living as part of the community is important but difficult for people with dementia? Participating in social and leisure activities has a positive impact on cognitive (brain) function and on the progression of dementia. Dementia symptoms create barriers which limit personal freedoms and, as a result, a person with dementia and his or her family may exclude themselves or become excluded from activities in which they once participated. The barriers to participation are rarely associated with dementia symptoms alone and can be divided into three groups: 1. Intrapersonal barriers - the psychological state of the people with dementia: apathy and depression or fear of making mistakes and of being judged 2. Interpersonal barriers - the family situation, the presence or not of a supportive social network and the relationships with the people and services around them 3. Structural barriers - architectural, environmental communication and logistical barriers. Developing a Dementia-Friendly Community requires all of us to make small changes in our communication and approach to people with dementia and in the physical environment. Living actively as part of your community can slow down the progression of dementia. This can allow people with dementia to live better for longer in the earlier stages of dementia, when they are more able to understand and communicate, and make decisions about their life and care.

THE BENEFITS OF A NORMAL LIFE.... • What are the benefits of getting ‘out and about’ for a person with dementia?

Physical benefits: 1. Living an active lifestyle can slow the progression of dementia 2. Physical activity such as walking and gardening help to maintain strength, balance and coordination which are often effected by dementia 3. Physical activity is important for improving sleep patterns, appetite and memory 4. In some cases physical activity outdoors has been shown to reduce the need for medication. Emotional Benefits: 1. Being outdoors, in contact with nature, can provide a distraction from dementia symptoms, reduce their intensity and associated stress, anxiety and depression 2. Feeling the summer sun or the cold winter air may help person orient themselves in time, the season and the weather 3. Being ‘out and about’ may help the person to remember pleasant experiences from their past, as well as offer happy new experiences. Social Benefits: 1. Getting out of the house facilitates some things which are essential to all of us: a sense of identity, belonging and friendship 2. Enjoyable social activity, such as going to a café or for a walk around the town with a caregiver, friend or relative can help the person feel part of their community.

DEMENTIAdiDIAGNOSIS Diagnosi demenza and SUPPORT PATHWAYS If you live in the Pellice Valley and think you may be experiencing dementia symptoms you can seek a diagnosis and support by following these processes or pathways. This will vary in different places but wherever you are your family doctor or your national dementia/Alzheimer’s organization will be able to help, see www.adi.co.uk for country contacts.

Talk to your family doctor

1

If your doctor suspects you may have some form of dementia he or she will request an appointment with a specialist doctor, a geriatrician or a neurologist.

2 The specialist will carry out an evaluation and provide, if necessary, a diagnosis of dementia.

Go to the Acli-Caf-Patronato (+39 0121 91641) with all the relevant documentation. They can process your application for support and make the request for an appointment with INPS.

WHY THESE PATHWAYS?

Return to the family doctor with the diagnosis to seek medical care, financial and practical support. He or she can make an online application for a ‘certificate of invalidity’ from INPS (+39 0121 3641) needed by the state to legaly certify your current state of health and support needs.

3 4

Go to your local PASS (see Useful Services) with all the relevant documentation.

5

YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

Based on your health and socio-economic situation INPS may determine that you are entitled to financial and practical support to help meet your needs at home or in a residential care setting. The level of support can be reviewed if your medical or socio-economic situation changes. Support includes equipment loans, visits by home care staff, and financial contributions to care costs.

PASS provides information about local support services (e.g. Alzheimer’s Cafés, selfhelp groups, residential, day, night and home care services) and leisure, training and volunteering opportunities for people with dementia and their families.
