Question about Alzheimer's Treatment

Question about Alzheimer's Treatment
August 14, 2016 10:16PM
My mother was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. How important is it to see a doctor who specializes in treating Alzheimer's disease? I don't think we have any Alzheimer's prevention clinics in my local area. What would you suggest in order for my mom to get the best medical treatment possible for Alzheimer's?

Hi Eloisa,

I had the same concern when my mom was initially diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Fortunately, I live in New York, so I was able to access local services offered here, at an Alzheimer's prevention clinic. Have you tried searching on Google to check to see if there are any specialists in your local area?

Thank so much for responding to my blog forum post Kosame. I was NOT able to find a doctor who specializes in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease in my local area. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hi Eloisa,

It's great that you are taking the time to do research to find the best available treatment for your mom! Unfortunately, there are many geographic areas of the country that do not offer Alzheimer's disease specialists. We recommend exploring the options for clinical trials. Check out our clinical trials page at [] to learn about what clinical studies are, and how you can access upcoming clinical trials related to Alzheimer's disease for your mom.

If you have any other questions, please let us know, we're always here to help!
