Expert Video - What non-drug treatments are used for Alzheimer's disease?

Dr. Richard Isaacson, director of the Alzheimer's Prevention Clinic at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, talks about ways to reduce the effect of vascular (blood vessel) risk factors and slow the cognitive decline of Alzheimer's disease. He describes which other health conditions should be controlled for better clinical outcomes, as well as the role of the Mediterranean diet and how sleep, exercise, stress, and support for the person with Alzheimer's disease and those who care for them can all make a difference in coping with symptoms and improving quality of life with Alzheimer's.
