Delirium in the Older Person: A Family Guide

Winner of a 2007 Gold Questar International Award for Video Communication

This DVD is for families affected by delirium, to help them learn more about what it is and how to cope with it.

The 27-minute video follows the experience of two families when a loved one develops delirium. It includes information and advice from health care professionals and medical experts. A family's ability to recognize delirium can be of life-saving importance. Getting prompt assessment and treatment for the underlying cause can mean the difference between returning to normal life or being confined to increasing levels of care, or even death.
