Dementia- Neurology Clinic Dubai DRHC

Dementia is a Neurological disease that affects the patient‘s memory, thought process, ability to perform day-to-day activities, and behavior. Many times, Dementia is thought as a normal part of the aging process, but scientifically dementia is a disease and not a part of the aging process. Worldwide there are 10 million new cases of dementia every year. Actually, Dementia is an umbrella term, of which Alzheimer’s disease is the most common subtype.

Currently, there is no curative treatment for dementia, but early diagnosis can help slow the progression of disability and help the patient live a relatively independent life. Most of the time early stage of dementia is often overlooked as a normal aging process. In the early stages a person might experience forgetfulness and lose track of daily activities. He or she might get lost in familiar places. The person might have a problem remembering passwords or managing money.

These early symptoms are noticed by patients as well as close relatives, and it is at this stage that medical help should be sought to get maximum benefits. As dementia progresses, forgetfulness becomes more and more prominent, the patient may get lost in his home, might experience communication problems, might need help for personal care. Behavioral issues come up including aimless wandering, repetitive behavior, and sleep disturbances. In the late stages, the patient may become unaware of time, place, and person. He or she may become bed bound and need help for all activities of daily living.

Early diagnosis helps to promote optimum management, identify treatable etiologies, find out other physical comorbidities and manage emotional and behavioral issues associated with dementia.
