Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care Guidelines

Happy mother and daughter

Alzheimer’s and dementia are diseases that take individuals through different stages, from initial signs of cognitive impairment to end of life care. Up until now, guidelines for professional caretakers haven’t specifically covered each area of care and stage of the disease, but the Alzheimer’s Association has recently published the “Alzheimer’s Association Diagnostic Evaluation Clinical Practice Guideline” and the “Dementia Care Practice Recommendations” to offer better guidelines for evaluation and care.
