10 important questions to ask your doctor about Alzheimer's disease
diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease can cause many concerns. It can be hard to remember to ask all the questions you'd like answered during doctor's appointments. Here are some suggestions: What course does Alzheimer's disease usually follow? What new treatments are available? I've heard about medicines that can alleviate the symptoms. Are they effective? What are their side effects? Does Alzheimer's disease affect how long someone lives? How long can a person function normally after being diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease? Can patients with Alzheimer’s disease be a danger to themselves or others? What's the best place for care: at my home or in a nursing home? What do I need to do to make my home safe and comfortable for someone who has Alzheimer's disease? What services and support organisations for Alzheimer's disease are available on a national level and in my area? Does Alzheimer's disease run in families?
