Managing and Treating Alzheimer's Disease
This slide show explains management and treatment options for Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer's disease currently cannot be cured, but drugs and other treatments can help reduce symptoms, slow memory loss, and improve quality of life. This slide show describes medications for memory loss and medications for behavioral symptoms. It also describes non-drug treatments that can help people with Alzheimer's disease sleep better, feel calmer and happier, and possibly keep doing daily activities for longer. Discuss all your treatment options and questions with your doctor and healthcare team. This will help you make decisions that are right for you and your loved one. If there is anything you don't understand, ask to have it explained.
