In general, we ask you to consider this page as a collection of knowledge about dementia and Alzheimer's disease. We want to point out, that we take no responsibility for diagnosing Alzheimer's or dementia of one of your relatives. If you have a suspicion that one of your relatives is afflicted by one of these diseases then you should first visit your local doctor, a neurologist or a nearby hospital. The same applies for the mentioned drugs and therapy forms. For each patient, both aspects have to be adjusted individually by a doctor.
