Specialists for Alzheimer’s and Dementia

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, there are certain specialists that you should take your clients to see if they happen to be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or Dementia. These include:

  • Neurologist – specializes in diseases of the brain and nervous system
  • Psychiatrist – specializes in disorders that affect mood or the way the mind works
  • Psychologist – has special training in testing memory and other mental functions
  • Geriatrician – specializes in the care of older adults and Alzheimer’s disease

These doctors will evaluate your clients’ overall health and welfare. They will be able to identify any and all conditions that may affect just how well your client’s mind is working….or not.

Besides being able to tell if your client has one of these two serious mental disorders, they should be able to determine what type of Dementia that your client may have as well. In order to get the proper information, you and your clients should check out how to learn more about different types of dementia. When you do this for them, you are definitely showing them that With Age Comes Respect.
