Treating the untreatable dementias

Creative Commons 'BY' version 4.0 license

Treatable, or potentially curable, causes of dementia constitute approximately 10 percent of cases. Although the major of dementing illnesses, like Alzheimer’s disease, cannot be cured, ongoing treatment and support are available. Communication with patients and family caregivers, safety and educational measurers, support for caregivers, management of associated symptoms, and use of a multidisciplinary approach to patient management can help bring about a better quality of life for both the patients and their families.
