At Dementech Neurosciences, we offer a multidisciplinary approach to treat all the variety of symptoms of AD. We have in-house speech and language therapist, occupational therapist, dietitian, psychologist and psychiatrist to manage effectively HD symptoms and 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.

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.
