MILD COGNITIVE IMPAIRMENT: 10 THINGS TO KNOW

Dear all,Take a good read of the detailed explanation of this article on Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) which is a frequently asked question.  With age often comes an increase in the number and frequency of memory slips - forgetting where you put your keys, blanking on the name of an acquaintance, etc. These experiences, in turn, fuel fears that one has Alzheimer's or another form of dementia, leading to one crucial question: What's the difference between dementia and normal aging? It's a…See More

A DICE-y Approach to Taming Dementia Symptoms

Treatment for managing dementia depends on its type and severity, but drug therapy often plays a role. Drugs can't cure dementia, but psychotropic medications, which include antipsychotics, antidepressants and anticonvulsants, are used with extreme caution in certain cases to help improve behavioural symptoms such as aggression, agitation, lack of inhibition and depression - symptoms that caregivers tend to feel are more stressful or difficult to handle than the trademark memory loss associated…See More
