Dementia - Support
There are a range of things that can be done to help with dementia. For certain individuals, there are medications available that can help improve memory and cognitive function and reduce the rate of future decline. Occupational therapists can also advise on practical strategies and changes to your home that may promote maximal function despite cognitive difficulties.
There are also medications and other forms of treatment that can help with psychological and behavioural changes that sometimes accompany dementia.
Managing the physical consequences of dementia is also important. Physiotherapists are available to guide those with dementia and their carers to allow maximum physical function and mobility.
We recognise the impact that dementia has not only on the person with the condition but their loved ones and others involved in their care. We endeavour to address all these issues. Both practical and psychological support are offered at the clinic to help you manage the situation.
