Diagnosing Dementia

Diagnosing Dementia


We hear the terms Dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy Body, etc. and wonder, what are the differences and do they really matter when someone we love has cognitive losses?

Understanding and diagnosing Dementia is a difficult task for doctors and often the diagnosis differs from physician to physician. Why is this? How come it seems that we don’t really know much about the disease and its symptoms? Today’s guest on Caregivers’ Circle, Dr. Jason Strauss MD, will shed light on the diagnostic process, symptom presentation, and what it all really means for treatment. For more information on Dementia, visit the Alzheimer’s Association.
