ALZHEIMER'S: WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW?
The two concerning statistics many families will confront:
Every 66 seconds someone develops Alzheimer's.
One in three seniors die of Alzheimer's or Dementia.
While the prevalence is very concerning there is new hope, as many
promising therapies are in the pipeline. Unfortunately, the
diagnosis of Alzheimer's is not straightforward. There is no one test.
The diagnosis truly rests on a detailed history and clinical
examination obtained by a physician, specifically neurologists with
expertise in this area. When diagnosis is confirmed, patients and
families need advice on what to expect and the availability of
community resources. While there is no cure, there are treatments
that do slow its rate of progression.
At Neurological Associates of Long Island, we take a comprehensive
approach to caring for patients with dementia, recognizing the need
to treat both the patient and caregiver. In one location, we can
perform a complete evaluation including cognitive testing and
neuroimaging with access to high field open MRI imaging. Our
physical therapy department has a gait and balance program
specifically geared to those with dementia. Beyond offering FDA
approved medication options, we have a clinical research program
offering in some of the most exciting clinical trials available.
