The Dementia Umbrella
There are many different types of dementia. Many people know the term Alzheimer’s disease. This is the most prevalent type of this disease. 60-80% of patients with dementia have Alzheimer’s disease. This has led to the terms being used interchangeably over the years, but in fact there are currently 11 brain disorders listed under the dementia umbrella. Each disorder has a slightly different cause but each leads to devastating consequences on the person’s life.
Disease progression and treatment are varied for this disease. For this reason, we customize care for each patient, starting with a free evaluation by a dementia professional who will visit your Michigan home.
