Alzheimerâ€™s disease does not have a known cure, but researchers are working every day to slow down and eventually stop its development. Recent research shows a link between depression and cognitive disorders, including Alzheimerâ€™s later in life. There are a variety of treatments available for those with depression and/or Alzheimerâ€™s, such as medication or support groups that work to battle symptoms and slow down the disease. In addition to these methods, long-term care is used to help people with advanced stages to get necessary support and medical services. Non-drug approaches include sticking to a familiar daily routine, celebrating small successes and achievements, reassurance, exercise and more. With the right diagnosis and appropriate long-term care your loved one will be taken care of so you can rest easier at night.
