What we do, What You can Do
Delirium is a common and potentially serious medical condition that can affect the elderly, the frail, the sick, the cognitively impaired - but more generally: everyone - given "stressing" events.
These may include - among others - infections, operations, change in or withdrawal from medication, sensory deprivation or even simply removal from one's familiar environment such as hospitalization.
Delirium is a state of acute confusion.
