Alzheimer’s Disease Without Dementia: A New Journey of Care

Much of the debate surrounding Alzheimer’s distracts from the fact that we are on the cusp of a revolution in the diagnosis, treatment and long-term management of the disease. The next five to seven years purports a transformation; from short-term treatment of symptoms to a long-term ‘stable state’, resulting in living with Alzheimer’s without dementia. Importantly, sustaining this state for a significant period of time enables patients to prolong their maintenance of daily function, which in turn extends quality of life for patients as well as their families. Dr Emer MacSweeney of Re:Cognition, in conjunction with Liz Moench and Elizabeth Puller of MediciGlobal Ltd, discuss the path towards a significant change in the course of Alzheimer’s disease.
