    The Caring for Cognitive Impairment Campaign recognises the need for a person-centred approach to care, which looks at the person as a whole and not just the symptom they are presenting with in hospital. People with dementia are at a high risk of delirium. 30%-40% of delirium cases can be prevented. Alzheimer’s Australia supports the Caring for Cognitive Impairment Campaign because we can and must improve care outcomes for people living with dementia who go into hospital.
