Description
The incidence of dementia is on a rise. Of the several diseases that can result in dementia, Alzheimer disease(AD)is the most frequent one. Treatment based on the correct diagnosis of dementia should be performed. Although the prevention of AD is possible by certain methods, such interventions merely delay the onset of this condition without completely stopping its development. AD can be treated with both medical and non-pharmacological therapies, but the effects are limited. Early examination for the diagnosis of AD is crucial for the successful implementation of all future treatment strategies. In the case of cerebrovascular diseases, improving one’s habits will assist in the prevention of vascular dementia.
