Dementia Specialists


Dementia is not a specific disease but is rather a general term for the impaired ability to remember, think, or make decisions that interfere with everyday activities. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia, but there are many different types of dementia, all of which affect different parts of the brain in different ways.


Dementia can be a most devastating experience for both the affected individual and their family. Often, families are waiting for things to "get better" and for the person to become their old self, but there is no cure for dementia.


As Dementia Specialists, we work with families to develop an understanding of the the specific dementia process and treatments, what to expect and plan for, and how to manage activities of daily living and stress. Understanding the type of dementia an older person is experiencing will help with planning for disease progression and management.
