Neurological treatment and rehabilitation can be an effective way of improving functionality for those with dementia

If you or a loved one has received a diagnosis of dementia you will be keen to understand how you can slow the progression of the disease and maintain a good quality of life.

Studies have shown that neuro rehabilitation has been effective in improving everyday functioning1 . Neuro rehabilitation treatment can help strengthen the existing neural pathways, may help rebuild others and can help the individual in terms of developing compensatory coping mechanisms.

What is dementia?

Dementia is the collective name for a group of conditions that relate to decreased brain functioning and often similar symptoms.

Whilst many dementia conditions are not curable, medication and certain types of therapy have been shown to decrease the rate of progression of the disease.

Dementia neuro rehabilitation:

Our team of neuro psychologists are able to carry out full and comprehensive dementia assessments.

These are the first step to developing a personalised treatment plan by establishing current strengths, weakness and functional abilities. This, teamed with an assessment of the levels of motivation and degree of support networks available will help your consultant determine a personalised set of goals for treatment.

Treatment can involve learning compensatory coping mechanisms, helping with emotional responses to the impairment and dealing with psychosocial difficulties often found with the disease, such as anger management.

To talk to someone today about booking an assessment with a neuropsychologist please call 0203 326 9160.
