Dementia Treatment

Early Dementia Detection Is Key

Dementia is characterized by significant memory impairment along with one or several of the following impairments: impaired cognitive function, decreased attention and focus, impaired problem solving and planning, decreased spatial skills, and decreased organization. Many signs and symptoms of dementia are overlooked in the early stages and appear benign. However, as the condition progresses, the symptoms become more noticeable, especially by family and friends.

Dementia – Not Your Normal Aging

Early symptoms may be dismissed as “normal aging.” However, that is an incorrect assumption, and as the condition progresses, the brain will atrophy.

It is critical for healthcare professionals to recognize the early signs of dementia, know the causative mechanisms, and help develop brain-health strategies in the early stages of condition.

There Is Treatment Available

Dr. Bagnell will assess during the examination the level of decline through oculomotor tests, posture, stability and memory tasks. Therapy is designed to improve neuroplastic responses in several lay regions of the brain and metabolic/nutritional recommendations to support healthy brain function. This condition is progressive so ongoing home care is a highly recommended aspect following initial phase of care.
