Dementia Decoded: Decisions, Negotiations, and Choices
In the third episode of our Dementia Decoded series, we look at the current slate of treatment options available to people living with neurodegenerative dementia, and the road toward new and better ones.

Dementia isn't like other diseases - the fear and stigma surrounding it often make it difficult to even get someone who may be living with it to get a proper diagnosis, and the perceived lack of options lead many to wonder if a diagnosis can do more harm than good. But while there's no cure yet for Alzheimer's disease, there are definitely ways of approaching it medically, and often things that look like Alzheimer's are really something much easier to treat.
