Mixed dementia. Sometimes, these diseases can be heavy Stacked. This is the most common disease in Alzheimer’s disease Vascular dementia is also found in Alzheimer’s disease

Lewy body dementia.

Medical treatment Degenerative or irreversible dementia can not be cured Therapy focuses on maintaining the patient’s cognitive and functional abilities.

Elderly The specific treatment of dementia depends on the cause. For example, drug therapy Can slow down the rate of decline and improve memory function for the Azhar Merck & apos; s disease and Lewy body disease.

These drugs are called bile Alkaline esterase inhibitors, which appear to be effective in some patients. for

Alzheimer’s patients have developed a new drug To prevent the construction of chemicals and even contribute to memory loss.

The treatment of vascular dementia includes controlling risk factors such as height Blood pressure and high cholesterol. There are other drugs available to monitor the other Dementia symptoms, including sleep disorders, movement disorders, depression Or behavioral symptoms such as irritability or restlessness.

These include thyroid imbalance, vitamin B12, and plum poison. Also, some laboratory tests can indicate dementia Risk factors such as high cholesterol or high blood pressure Brain imaging. Computer (CT) scan or magnetic resonance

Nursing, the family can also plan and find adequate support and care The following are the most common degenerative dementias: Alzheimer’s disease.

Alzheimer’s is the most Common dementia, especially over the age of 65, though However, the disease can also occur in young people.

Alzheimer Syndrome affects about 50% of patients in the 85-year-old. The study The exact reason why people can not find the disease at present is not There is a cure.

Symptoms vary from person to person, but a memory, thinking And operational capacity will gradually decrease with the loss of function Ischemic vascular dementia (Ischemic Vascular Dementia) Dementia / IVD).

IVD is the second most common Dementia is characterized by loss of working function, or cognitive function The force declines in the “administrative functions” directly, such as planning and

mission accomplished. When the symptoms suddenly appear, the patient usually

Experienced a stroke. For others, for others, Slow progression of function and thought Gradually lost.

Dementia with Lewy Bodies / DLB). Dementia with Lewy bodies is a gradual Progressive degenerative disease share with Alzheimer’s disease And symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. DLB cognitive function wave

Motional damage and have motor abnormalities and Parkinson’s disease Performance similar.

Frontotemporal dementia Dementia / FTD). Scanning can be found bilaterally symmetrical Degenerative abnormalities in the frontal and temporal lobes.

The frontal lobe of the brain Anterior temporal control of reasoning, personality, movement, speech, Social etiquette and some aspects of memory. Symptoms Sometimes Can be misdiagnosed as mental illness.

Dementia and and cognitive decline (Alzheimer’s disease). Can cause some of the brain structure, especially the basal ganglia Which may lead to patients unable to control their own action And emotions, as well as causing mental and cognitive functioning

Degradation. Some structures are responsible for thinking, remembering And the ability to understand was also affected, possibly due to basal ganglia Connected to the frontal lobe of the brain. Therefore, the patient may be out.

The role of caregiver A good working relationship with the primary care physician has been established, Helping to ensure safe care and sustained support.

One End Into therapeutic tests to exclude treatable diseases and to provide current status State information on the current and future care plans for the benefit foundation.

When making the right diagnosis, take care of and family education So that requirement can be requested and located and used resources.

Reversible dementia requires an increased level of attention along with The development of the disease.

Through education and use of existing resources, the family Members can learn new skills to deal with changes in health care needs

Many parents take care of dementia patients at home. Although this is a gorgeous and very useful experience can also give high pressure.

Studies have shown that caring for people with impaired brain impairments More than physical barriers, more pressure.

Caregivers must spend Time to take care of your body and mind.Other people’s support and assistance are imperative. From friends

Help, other family members or community agencies are invaluable
