“These drugs won’t bring back memory and thinking, but they can boost what functions remain and help with behavioural problems and hallucinations,” notes the health body.
In some people with hallucinations (when hallucinations are frightening or threaten safety, for example), additional treatment may be necessary, adds the health site.
In addition to medicine, there are a number of therapies and practical measures that can help make life easier for someone with dementia.
For example, psychological therapies, such as cognitive stimulation (activities and exercises are designed to improve memory, problem solving skills and language ability), may delay the severity of symptoms, according to the NHS.
