Dementia recently claimed the life of legendary women's basketball coach Pat Summitt. A new case of dementia is diagnosed every four seconds. It's estimated that the number of people with dementia is expected to increase to 75.6 million by 2030. With the demand for dementia care rising, there is a need to know more about the treatment, not just of the illness itself, but of those impacted by it. With an eye towards helping those who help dementia sufferers, the Illinois State University Mennonite College of Nursing recently launched a research project about nursing care knowledge and attitudes towards patients with dementia.
