Today we are joined by Dr. Pam Tronetti and Janet Rooks with Parrish Healthcare. We are going to talk about what medications are out there to treat Alzheimer's disease and dementia. We've talked about this in the past, but there are about 50 different types of dementia. Dementia is that umbrella term that describes progressive memory loss and the loss of the ability to live independently. We do have prescription medications available for dementia and we want to talk about these.
