Dementia and Alzheimer's disease

Dementia is a general term for a group of symptoms associated with a decline in brain functioning. In the UK, Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia. As the disease advances, symptoms get more severe and can include loss of memory, disorientation, confusion, and behavioural changes.

Recognising that there's a problem isn't always easy, but an accurate and timely diagnosis can help you prepare for the future and receive treatment or support that may help.

Symptoms of Dementia

Dementia conditions share similar symptoms including memory loss, personality changes and emotional difficulties.

Alzheimer's Dementia

The most common of all the Dementia illnesses (55% of all Dementia diagnoses), Alzheimer’s has several causes, which should be fully investigated to ensure the right treatment is found.

Lewy Bodies Dementia (DLB)

Often misdiagnosed, Lewy Bodies Dementia cannot be cured, but with the right treatment, the progress can be significantly slowed.

Fronto-temporal Lobar Dementia (FTLD)

It’s vital to get the right diagnosis for FTLD as some other Dementia medications can make the symptoms worse.

Vascular Dementia

The second most common type of Dementia – Vascular Dementia can affect those who have had strokes or have a history of Dementia in the family.

Parkinson’s Disease

Difficult to diagnose in the early stages, Parkinson’s requires specialist assessment and treatment to help slow the progress of the disease.

Mild Cognitive Impairment

Those with memory loss, but do not have Dementia may have MCI – 15% of those with MCI will go on to develop Dementia later on, so early intervention is crucial.

Dementia Assessments

Misdiagnosis of the cause of memory loss can result in incorrect treatment, possible causing further harm. A correct diagnosis is therefore vital.

Treatment Options

Medication options are often used to slow the progress of the diseases and can be highly effective, if the right one is chosen. Psychology and Psychotherapy can also be invaluable at helping with the emotional symptoms.
