Alzheimer's disease and other dementias significantly impact the patients and their families. Physicians of all specialties should become familiar with the early signs of this disease to refer patients with symptoms to facilitate early testing and the best care options. Typically, Alzheimer's progresses in three stages—mild (early-stage), moderate (middle-stage), and severe (late-stage), with symptoms worsening over time. However, only 45 percent of people with Alzheimer's disease or their caregivers report being told of the diagnosis. Studies have revealed that physicians and other healthcare providers recognize the benefits of disclosing Alzheimer's, but there is a reluctance to do so despite this.
There is strong evidence that the risk of cognitive decline may be decreased through non-pharmacological treatment options such as regular physical and social activities and improving cardiovascular risk factors. This website was created to inform healthcare professionals about digital options to test, diagnose and treat patients with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias.
