What is Alzheimer’s Disease?

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a degenerative brain disease and the most common cause of dementia. For the last few years, Alzheimer’s has been in the centre of global attention with numerous international collaborations and projects, all trying to develop new treatments, especially for the early stages of the disease.

Alzheimer’s usually affects people over the age of 65, but younger people can develop early onset Alzheimer’s. The disease is closely linked to genetics, gender, and some medical conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure and depression.

Dementech Neurosciences offers a wide range of cutting-edge services, specifically designed for people with Alzheimer’s disease, such as the Dementech Biomaker Tools and genetic counselling appointments. Start your journey with us now to see how much progress you could make with our specialist support.

What are The Symptoms of Alzheimer’s?

Alzheimer’s symptoms will begin relatively mild, and barely noticeable. However, as more brain cells are damaged over time, signs will become moderate and will soon begin to have an impact on the person’s day to day life. Below are some of the key symptoms across the 3 main stages of Alzheimer’s disease. 

Early-stage Alzheimer’s disease symptoms include:

  • Difficulty in remembering recent conversations, names or events
  • Apathy and depression

Middle-stage Alzheimer’s disease symptoms include:

  • Impaired communication
  • Disorientation
  • Moderate confusion

Late-stage Alzheimer’s disease symptoms include:

  • Severely impaired memory
  • Poor judgement
  • Behaviour changes
  • Difficulty speaking, swallowing and walking

How is Alzheimer’s Diagnosed?

There’s no single test for Alzheimer’s, or dementia. A diagnosis is based on a combination of assessments and tests. These can be done in our Memory Clinic in a single day. As part of the initial consultation, the Alzheimer’s specialist will take a history of your symptoms, ask about any medications you are currently taking and review any other existing conditions you are struggling with. From there, you may be required to undertake some or all of the following assessments:

  • Blood tests
  • Mental ability tests
  • Brain scans: Other types of scan, such as a PET scan, may be recommended if the result of your MRI or CT scan is uncertain.

The results of your tests will provide the information required for specialists to put together your bespoke treatment plan. 

By using the latest advances in imaging and genetics, our specialists at our London clinic will be able to answer all your questions regarding diagnosis, prognosis, and monitoring of progression and responses to treatment.

Early-stage Alzheimer's

In the early stage of Alzheimer's, a person may still be able to function independently. They may still drive, work and be part of social activities. Despite this, the person may feel as if they are having lapses in their memory, such as forgetting familiar locations of everyday objects, or familiar words.

Middle-stage Alzheimer's

During this stage of Alzheimer’s, symptoms of dementia become more pronounced. You may find that the person is confusing their words, becoming more frustrated and angry, and can even act in ways that are out of character.

Late-stage Alzheimer's

In the final stage of the disease, symptoms of dementia are severe. Individuals lose the ability to respond to their environment, to engage in conversation and, eventually, to control movement. They may still say words or phrases, but communicating pain becomes difficult for them.

Learn more about each stage and how Alzheimer’s disease can progress in this blog post.

What is The Treatment for Alzheimer’s Disease?

Specific treatments used for Alzheimer’s disease will depend on the individual and the stage at which Alzheimer’s is diagnosed.

In many cases, prescribed medications can assist individuals in managing their Alzheimer’s symptoms, but treatment without drugs can also be highly beneficial for some patients. At Dementech, our specialists have years of experience researching and understanding the intricacies of Alzheimer’s disease, and after thorough assessments will be able to recommend specific treatment paths for each patient depending on their experience of the symptoms.

In addition to medications, therapy and personal care, forms of practical support may also be recommended during the later stages of the disease. This could involve cognitive stimulation activities, social activities and behaviour management support. Whatever the best course of action may be, our team of experts can help.

How Will Dementech Support You
in an Alzheimer’s Diagnosis?

At Dementech Neurosciences, we offer a multidisciplinary approach towards Alzheimer’s disease treatment. We have in-house speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, dietitians, psychologists and psychiatrists to help patients manage their symptoms and any other complications.

We use cutting-edge technology (CANTAB) to assess the severity of cognitive deficits in people with AD. This enables us to provide an early diagnosis of cognitive impairment and effectively manage it. We also provide genetic screening and counselling for the family carrying genes associated with an altered risk of AD.

Moreover, we offer the opportunity to participate in clinical trials testing novel pharmacological intervention, before they become available to the public, aiming to delay the progression of the disease.
