Memory loss and concern of forgetfulness is a common complaint amongst many. Here at PNP, we are committed to working with not only the patient, but the family as well to provide comprehensive support.
What is dementia?
- Dementia is progressive which means it starts slow and gradually worsens.
- Dementia is not a single disease, but an umbrella term for multitude of diseases.
Types: Alzheimer’s, Lewy body dementia, frontotemporal dementia.
Many times, lab work as well as a full neurological work up is obtained for the patient. We may also recommend other subspecialities such as Neuropsychology.
We have access to support groups and information to help patients and their families navigate this.
