How to Handle a Diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease

May 19, 2014 Lauren Hardy, MA

Being recently diagnosed with, or even facing a possibility of, Alzheimer’s disease can be one of the scariest and emotionally overwhelming times in a person’s life. Once everyone has come to terms with the Alzheimer's diagnosis and worked through the initial shock, there are things that need to be done so that you will know what to expect and help minimize the amount of issues that may arise. After having a thorough conversation with your doctor about the symptoms you may experience and the types of Alzheimer's medications and therapies that may help slow the progression of this disease, it can be beneficial for the patient and his or her loved ones to look into different treatment options.
