Mental confusion among elderly people

Many different factors can cause mental confusion among elderly people. Some common causes of elderly mental confusion include: Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, medications, stroke, head injury, drug abuse, depression, anxiety, fever or sleep problems. Frequently, confusion leads to the loss of ability to recognize people and or places, or tell time and the date. Feelings of disorientation are common in confusion, and decision-making ability is impaired. Mental confusion among elderly people may arise suddenly or develop gradually over time.
