Abstract

Depression is one example of a treatable dementia. On the other side of the scale, dementia is usually an over-diagnosis. Every physician must rule out treatable causes, for the actual diagnosis depends on months of monitoring of the patient's cognitive and social functioning. Although cure is not available for most forms of dementia, optimal management can provide improvements in the ability of these patients to function, as well as in their overall well-being. There is life after the diagnosis of dementia. Put them in the geriatric day care program. (Conclusion)
