Antipsychotic Drugs are Overused for Dementia

When antipsychotic drugs are used to treat a behavior problem with a dementia patient, sometimes they are inappropriately prescribed.

Dealing with Dementia Denial

You realize that your father is slowly forgetting even his most precious memories. However, you tell yourself that it’s just normal for his age, and he’s really alright even though you know deep down inside that he really isn’t. This is a form of “dementia denial” where you can’t accept that your loved one has a form of dementia.
