Mayo Clinic on Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias

In Mayo Clinic on Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias, you'll gain an understanding of dementia based on what researchers and other medical experts know about it today. You'll also learn that dementia isn't just about loss and decline. For many, a good quality of life can — and does — continue.

It's an exciting time in the field of Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. Significant progress has been made in the ability to diagnose dementia and detect Alzheimer's disease before symptoms develop. An early and accurate diagnosis offers a better understanding of how a person's illness will evolve.

Researchers have also discovered that dementia often has more than one cause, even though Alzheimer's disease is most common. This means that effective future treatment will be tailored to an individual.

Researchers are working diligently to develop therapies and, hopefully, prevent these diseases entirely. They understand the relationship between brain health and lifestyle behaviors, such as diet and exercise, much better than they have in the past. These are some of the reasons that there's hope in the world of dementia research.

As researchers work to develop new therapies, additional challenges must be addressed: reducing the stigma surrounding dementia and expanding care and support for those affected by dementia. These are urgent issues that require attention.
