Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) | What Is It, Types, Causes, Symptoms, Treatment & Prevention

Psychological care

There are different strategies to help someone with dementia practice his life normally. The main goal of psychological support for AD patients is to keep them as independent as possible and cope with impairments such as memory loss. Creating and reinforcing habitual habits, as well as reducing memory-demanding activities, may make life considerably simpler.

Keeping cognitively, physically, and socially active by attending cognitive rehabilitation or cognitive stimulation therapy can have a significant effect on patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. It is recommended for Alzheimer’s patients to keep up with activities they enjoy as well as participation in social events. If patients experience attacks of anxiety or depression their caregivers can deal with it by identifying what triggered these attacks and avoiding them.
