Hope for Alzheimer's Patients

MediNurse offers hope for Alzheimer's patients.

Though there is no cure for Alzheimer’s, there is hope. Specialists in the field are optimistic about the outlook over the next 10 to 20 years, because they are realizing that Alzheimer's disease can be detected a decade before people have symptoms.

Medical advances have allowed doctors to indicate the disease early, even before there are any symptoms. Doctors have the ability to screen for Alzheimer’s prior to patients showing symptoms. 

If you have Alzheimer’s disease, it’s important to understand that your life is not over. Living with Alzheimer’s means dealing with some life changes sooner than you had anticipated.

You can live a meaningful and productive life by taking care of your physical and emotional health, by engaging in activities you enjoy and by spending time with family and friends.

There are numerous organizations that will help Alzheimer’s patients and their family members. Consider joining a support group or participating in e-learning workshops. MediNurse can also help provide care and instruction.
