There are few things more painful than watching someone you love suffer from the effects of dementia. Dementia, a progressive neurological disease, can cause problems with more than just memory loss. It can also impair visual perception, reasoning, judgment, and even a person's language. It can be heartbreaking to watch a previously healthy and self-reliant adult suffer the consequences of these symptoms. Fortunately, there are treatments like geriatric short-term occupational therapy that can provide some improvement in the quality of life to patients with dementia.
