Alzheimer’s disease affects each person differently; therefore, no two patients should be treated the same. Care should be delivered to meet an individual’s needs, encouraging long-term, successful management of the physical, emotional and cognitive health challenges associated with the disease.
Medications are often prescribed to Alzheimer’s patients to treat behavioral symptoms and help them avoid higher levels of care in nursing homes and special care units. However, there are also other treatments that can be used in combination with or in place of these medications.
While there is no curative treatment for the disease, there are many interventions physicians and caregivers can employ to ensure patients remain as safe and healthy as possible as the disease progresses. Being alert about behavioral changes and addressing those changes immediately in the most appropriate setting is imperative to maintaining their overall well-being.
