Help with confusion in later life.

Confusion is a change in mental state in which you are unable to think with your usual level of clarity. You might feel disoriented about time or where you are, or not recognise familiar faces. Confusion can also lead to problems communicating and concentrating or making decisions. Confusion is a common problem in older people. Confusion may start suddenly or may develop slowly over time.

In the over 65s, confusion is most likely to be a symptom of an acute medical condition or dementia, although it can also be associated with depression or other conditions.

Confusion may affect day to day activities such as shopping, cooking or driving. People with confusion may not be able to communicate their needs.

Diagnosing the cause of confusion is very important as there is always an underlying cause. Treating this may help the confusion. Our consultants and specialists are skilled at assessing confusion and giving you practical tips for its prevention where possible.
