Currently, a pharmacological disease-modifying treatment for dementia is not available, but different non-pharmacological approaches appear to be useful. In this chapter, we describe traditional treatments such as cognitive and emotion-oriented interventions, sensory and multi-sensory stimulation interventions and also potentially alternative interesting options such as behavioural therapy. Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common neurodegenerative disorder. Worldwide prevalence of the disease is estimated at more than 24 million cases. With aging of populations, this number will likely increase to more than 80 million cases by the year The annual incidence worldwide is estima .

Pharmacological treatments Unfortunately, there is no cure for dementia, so the main goals of treatment are to maintain quality of life, maximise function in daily activities, enhance recognition, mood and behaviour, foster a safe environment, and promote social engagement. Consideration of both pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions is recommended. Alzheimer's is a degenerative disease and the most common cause of dementia. It is characterised by forgetfulness and continuous decline in thinking and social skills due to severe impairment of the memory. Acupuncture is an inexpensive treatment method for people with Alzheimer's. Aromatherapy: This non-pharmacological therapy helps to.

  Alzheimer's disease belongs to a group of pathologies called dementias, being this one the most common type. It is a neurodegenerative disease that causes a progressive and disabling impairment of cognitive functions, including memory, comprehension, language, attention, reasoning and judgment. Until now there is no cure, although there are treatments available that can improve the . There are no drug treatments that can cure Alzheimer’s disease or any other common type of dementia. However, there are medicines for Alzheimer’s disease that can ease symptoms for a while, or slow down their progression, in some people. These drugs do not slow down or stop the progression of the underlying disease in the brain.

The overall prevalence of behavioral and psychiatric symptoms of dementia is 50–80 % []; thus, the majority of people with dementia may experience some of these occurrence of ISB in demented individuals reportedly ranges from 7 to 25 %, with higher prevalence in residents of skilled nursing facilities and in patients with more severe cognitive Cited by:   Caring for a patient with dementia is challenging, as we cannot cure Alzheimer’s disease but only slow its progress.

In the presented chapter, we offer non-pharmacological approaches for influencing the patient’s behaviour, actions and emotions, and to arouse their interest and motivation, while preserving the highest quality of life.

Methods: We searched and critically analyzed the most recent relevant literature on pharmacological treatment of AD. Results: The current pharmacological approach to AD treatment is based on vascular prevention and symptomatic.

Pharmacological therapies, which have dominated the scope of dementia treatment, have shown to be of limited value and far less research has been aimed at non-pharmacological therapies to treat. 1 Non-pharmacological treatments for dementia: a can be effective. b should always be used as a second line of treatment to medication.

Alzheimer’s disease is complex, and it is unlikely that any one drug or other intervention will successfully treat it.

Current approaches focus on helping people maintain mental function, manage behavioral symptoms, and slow down the symptoms of disease. Several prescription drugs are currently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat people who have been diagnosed.
