Abstract

Dementia, delirium and depression are all serious conditions that are particularly common
in older people. Their similar symptoms mean the conditions can go undetected and untreated. However, although they may present in similar ways, there are differences in the treatment and support approaches used for each. It is vital that health and care professionals can identify key risks, signs and symptoms associated with all three conditions so that appropriate support, treatment and management can be given.
