Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia in older people, and even though the risk of acquiring the disease increases with age, it isn’t a normal part of aging. As of today, the cause of the disease is unknown and there isn’t a cure. Depression and anxiety are very common in patients dealing with the early stages of this disease, and our trained professionals can help you determine if you are experiencing depression and will help you find a treatment plan.
Depending on the severity of your Alzheimer’s disease, your therapist will determine the correct treatment plan. A therapist will support you through your negative feelings, pinpoint areas in your life that you may wish to change, help you set realistic goals, and give you tools to identify and prevent future bouts of anxiety and depression. Your therapist will custom-tailor your sessions to what you need at that moment.
